Quote of the Day
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.
Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.
Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Edmond de Goncourt
Happiness is the absence of the striving for happiness.
In the absence of any other proof, the thumb alone would convince me of God's existence.
Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
The surest test of discipline is its absence.
Actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote happiness; wrong as they tend to produce the reverse of happiness. By happiness is intended pleasure and the absence of pain.
John Stuart Mill
Being solitary is being alone well: being alone luxuriously immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your won presence rather than of the absence of others. Because solitude is an achievement.
Courage is not the absence of despair; it is, rather, the capacity to move ahead in spite of despair.
Real magic in relationships means an absence of judgment of others.
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.

For me, it's not necessarily interesting to play a strong, fearless woman. It's interesting to play a woman who is terrified and then overcomes that fear. It's about the journey. Courage is not the absence of fear, it's overcoming it.
The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.
Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.
When you're having a bad day at work, a lot of times it's your head. When you're having good days, a lot of times it's the absence of the mind.
Simplicity is not the absence of clutter, that's a consequence of simplicity. Simplicity is somehow essentially describing the purpose and place of an object and product. The absence of clutter is just a clutter-free product. That's not simple.
I haven't changed my mind about modernism from the first day I ever did it... It means integrity; it means honesty; it means the absence of sentimentality and the absence of nostalgia; it means simplicity; it means clarity. That's what modernism means to me.
Absence diminishes mediocre passions and increases great ones, as the wind extinguishes candles and fans fires.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
There were a lot of rumors spread about me. Of course, I didn't show up to defend myself, so my absence helped create even more.
Being brave isn't the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear but finding a way through it.
The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
John F. Kennedy
