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.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.

The U.N. is worse than disaster. The U.N. creates conflicts. Look at the disgraceful U.N. Human Rights Council: It transmits norms which are harmful, anti-liberty and anti-Semitic, among other things. The world would be better off in its absence.
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.
The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

The absence of alternatives clears the mind marvelously.
Henry A. Kissinger
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

The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.
Heartless though it may seem to some, among the least harmful things to eat are sustainably culled wild animals. In the absence of natural predators, deer populations in parts of Britain have reached such dense numbers that the woodlands they browse fail to regenerate.
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.
