Absence Quotes

One has to be happy that he has total control over his absence as he has on his presence. You may have difficulty in decoding this statement but cannot deny the truth that absence makes everything sweeter than it is, in fact. Absence of something or someone makes you realize its real value, be it a person or an object. This revaluation may be either positive or negative but the end result is always positive. One of the reasons why many people think high of ‘nostalgia’ is due to absence. The absence of a special someone or the good ol’ times where life was all about catching up with friends at a party, are a few instances which spark nostalgia.

When a best friend leave, we tend to sulk and curse the phenomenon of absence but when he comes back, it gives an adrenaline rush that can’t be matched by anything. We usually don’t realize this in the presence of a person. Thus, absence is one of the most essential ingredients of life, which perhaps brings people closer and helps us value relationships. Take a look at these quotes about absence that may give you a teaspoon of enlightenment and rekindle the spark.
