NEGLECT
[ Also see Care Delay Diligence Failure Forgetfulness Idleness Indifference Loss Order Procrastination Sloth Unkindness Vigilance ]

A wise and salutary neglect.
      - Edmund Burke,
        Speech on the Conciliation of America
         (vol. II, p. 117)

No man is well pleased to have his all neglected, be it ever so little.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Give me a look, give me a face,
  That makes simplicity a grace:
    Robes loosely flowing, hair as free;
      Such sweet neglect more taketh me
        Than all the adulteries of art;
          They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.
      - Ben Jonson, Silent Woman (act I, sc. 1)

His noble negligences teach
  What others' toils despair to reach.
      - Matthew Prior, Alma (canto II, l. 7)

A man is called selfish, not for pursuing his own good, but for neglecting his neighbor's.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately
