DISTANCE
[ Also see Absence Familiarity Measurement Reserve ]

Sometimes it's necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly.
      - Edward Albee

To the vulgar eye, few things are wonderful that are not distant.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Distance sometimes endears friendship and absence sweeteneth it.
      - James Howell (Howel)

Distance either of time or place is sufficient to reconcile weak minds to wonderful relations.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

She pleased while distant, but when near she charm'd.
      - William Shenstone

If a proud man makes me keep my distance, the comfort is that he keeps his at the same time.
      - Jonathan Swift

Wishes, like painted landscapes, best delight,
  Whilst distance recommends them to the sight.
    Plac'd afar off, they beautiful appear:
      But show their coarse and nauseous colors near.
      - Thomas Yalden
