Famous quotes containing the word compensation:

    Senators and presidents have climbed so high with pain enough, not because they think the place specially agreeable, but as an apology for real worth, and to vindicate their manhood in our eyes. This conspicuous chair is their compensation to themselves for being of a poor, cold, hard nature.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Many old people receive pensions for no other reason, it seems to me, but as a compensation for having lived a long time ago.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In compensation for considerable disgust, despondency, and boredom—such as living in solitude without friends, books, duties, or passions necessarily entails—we are given those quarter-hours of deepest communion with ourselves and nature. Those who completely barricade themselves from boredom, barricade themselves from themselves as well: they will never get to drink the most refreshingly potent draught from the their own innermost fountain.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
