But when he (man) shall have been taken from sight, he quickly goes also out of mind.
  [Lat., Cum autem sublatus fuerit ab oculis, etiam cito transit a mente.]
      - Imitation of Christ (bk. I, ch. XXIII, 1)
        [Absence]

All His glory and beauty come from within, and there He delights to dwell, His visits there are frequent, His conversation sweet, His comforts refreshing; and His peace passing all understanding.
