The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) English poet

Frequently attributed to Tennyson, but found as early as in D. E. Macdonnel, A Dictionary of Quotations, in Most Frequent Use, (1809) translated from French: "Le bonheur de l'homme en cette vi ne consiste pas á être sans passions: il consiste à en être le maître."
