Resignation

  • He was resigned and on the whole patient, like a man with a very old illness.

  • ... he was small, dark, closed in that attitude of terrible resignation I recognized from my own childhood, and I knew that resignation to be the only defense, the only immunity in a world where children are often the martyrs.

  • ... I have often observed that resignation is never so perfect as when the blessing denied begins to lose somewhat of its value in our eyes.

  • ... resignation, perhaps the most stifling word in the language.

  • Ah! it is well for the unfortunate to be resigned, but for the guilty there is no peace.

  • ... the first time you are reconciled to the terrible unfairness of disappointment, you are getting old.
