“I am truly horrified by modern man. Such absence of feeling, such narrowness of outlook, such lack of passion and information, such feebleness of thought.”
“Days of absence, sad and dreary, Clothed in sorrow's dark array, Days of absence, I am weary; She I love is far away.”
“Absence weakens mediocre passions and increases great ones, as the wind blows out candles and kindles fires.”
François de la Rochefoucauld
“Absence and death are the same - only that in death there is no suffering.”
“Sport is part of every man and woman's heritage and its absence can never be compensated for.”
Pierre de Coubertin
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
“The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.”
Alfred Lord Tennyson
