Famous quotes containing the words compensation and/or lag:

    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)

    I could be well content
    To entertain the lag end of my life
    With quiet hours.
