Famous quotes containing the word absorbed:

    One cannot long remain so absorbed in contemplation of emptiness without being increasingly attracted to it. In vain one bestows on it the name of infinity; this does not change its nature. When one feels such pleasure in non- existence, one’s inclination can be completely satisfied only by completely ceasing to exist.
    Emile Durkheim (1858–1917)

    Realistic about how much one person can accomplish in a given day, women expect to have to make some trade-offs between work and family. Families, however, have absorbed all the stress and strain they possibly can. The entire responsibility for accommodation is taking place on the home side of the equation.
    Deborah J. Swiss (20th century)

    The opposite of love is not hate, as many believe, but rather indifference. Nothing communicates disinterest more clearly than distancing. A child cannot feel valued by parents who are forever absorbed in their own affairs.
    Dorothy Corkville Briggs (20th century)
