Comfort Quotes

Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words.

George Eliot

I admire addicts. In a world where everybody is waiting for some bline, random disaster, or some sudden disease, the addict has the comfort of knowing what will most likely wait for him down the road. He's taken some control over his ultimate fate, and his addiction keeps the cause of death from being a total surprise.

Chuck Palahniuk

Conscience is that still, small voice that is sometimes too loud for comfort.

Bert Murray

There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails,human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.

Jane Austen

As each Sister is to become a Co-Worker of Christ in the slums, each ought to understand what God and the Missionaries of Charity expect from her. Let Christ radiate and live his life in her and through her in the slums. Let the poor, seeing her, be drawn to Christ and invite him to enter their homes and their lives. Let the sick and suffering find in her a real angel of comfort and consolation. Let the little ones of the streets cling to her because she reminds them of him, the friend of the little ones.

Mother Teresa

If I need a cause for celebration Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind I rely on my imagination And I dream of an imaginary time.

Billy Joel

The beauteous eyes of the spring's fair night With comfort are downward gazing.

Heinrich Heine

The profession of a prostitute is the only career in which the maximum income is paid to the newest apprentice. It is the one calling in which at the beginning the only exertion is that of self-indulgence; all the prizes are at the commencement. It is the ever-new embodiment of the old fable of the sale of the soul to the Devil. The tempter offers wealth, comfort, excitement, but in return the victim must sell her soul, nor does the other party forget to exact his due to the uttermost farthing.

William Booth

Love and respect woman. Look to her not only for comfort, but for strength and inspiration and the doubling of your intellectual and moral powers. Blot out from your mind any idea of superiority; you have none.

Giuseppe Mazzini

Children are a great comfort in your old age -- and they help you reach it faster, too.

Lionel Kauffman

Man seeks to escape himself in myth, and does so by any means at his disposal. Drugs,alcohol, or lies. Unable to withdraw into himself,he disguises himself. Lies and inaccuracy give him a few moments of comfort.

Jean Cocteau

The citizen's job is to be rude - to pierce the comfort of professional intercourse by boorish expressions of doubt

John Ralston Saul

Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.

Val Saintsbury

If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom; and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too

William Somerset Maugham

Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.

Billy Graham
