Famous quotes containing the word console:

    Children, dear and loving children, can alone console a woman for the loss of her beauty.
    HonorĂ© De Balzac (1799–1850)

    Father of mercies and the God of all consolation, who consoles us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to console those who are in any affliction with the consolation with which we ourselves are consoled by God.
    Bible: New Testament, 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.

    Within the circuit of this plodding life
    There enter moments of an azure hue,
    Untarnished fair as is the violet
    Or anemone, when the spring strews them
    By some meandering rivulet, which make
    The best philosophy untrue that aims
    But to console man for his grievances.
    I have remembered when the winter came,
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
