Neglect
 
A wise and salutary neglect.
        Burke—Speech on the Conciliation of America. Vol. II. P. 117.

Give me a look, give me a face,
That makes simplicity a grace:
Robes loosely flowing, hair as free;
Such sweet neglect more taketh me
Than all the adulteries of art;
They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.
        Ben Jonson—The Silent Woman. Act I. Sc. 1.
  2
His noble negligences teach
What others’ toils despair to reach.
        Prior—Alma. Canto II. L. 7.
