Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Absent in body, but present in spirit.
St. Paul.—1 Cor., Chapter v. Verse 3.
[The mottoes or phrases, “Though lost to sight, to memory dear,” and “Though absent, not forgotten,” are probably derived from the passage in Cicero; for I have not met with them in my reading, neither can I learn that they are to be found in any author.]
