COMPENSATION
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 2
[ Also see Comparison Life Redemption Retribution Reward ]

As there is no worldly gain without some loss, so there is no worldly loss without some gain. If thou hast lost thy wealth, thou hast lost some trouble with it: if thou art degraded from thy honor, thou art likewise freed from the stroke of envy; if sickness hath blurred thy beauty, it hath delivered thee from pride. Set the allowance against the loss, and thou shalt find no loss great; he loses little or nothing that reserves himself.
      - Francis Quarles

If poverty makes man groan, he yawns in opulence. When fortune exempts us from labor, nature overwhelms us with time.
      - Antoine de Rivarol, Comte de Rivarol

Long pains are light ones,
  Cruel ones are brief!
      - John Godfrey Saxe, Compensation

If I have lost anything, it was incidental; and the less money, the less trouble; the less favor, the less envy,--nay, even in those cases which put us out of our wits, it is not the loss itself, but the estimate of the loss that troubles us.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

No evil is without its compensation.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

When fate has allowed to any man more than one great gift, accident or necessity seems usually to contrive that one shall encumber and impede the other.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne

The burden is equal to the horse's strength.
      - The Talmud, Talmud, Sota (13)

That not a moth with vain desire
  Is shrivel'd in a fruitless fire,
    Or but subserves another's gain.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam (LIV)

One golden day redeems a weary year.
      - Celia Leighton Thaxter

When the first is plucked, a second will not be wanting.
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil)

One plucked, another fills its room
  And burgeons with the previous bloom.
    [Lat., Primo avulso non deficit alter aureus.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        The Aeneid (VI, 143)

And light is mingled with gloom,
  And joy with grief;
    Divinest compensations come,
      Through thorns of judgment mercies bloom
        In sweet relief.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Anniversary Poem
         (st. 15)
