Comfort has a range of meaning not shared by the others, approaching that of pleasure, but of the quiet, durable, satisfying, heart-felt sort, meeting the needs most felt; as contrasted with consolation, it ordinarily applies to smaller or less known griefs, and is more positive and tender, and less formal. As contrasted with solace, comfort and consolation may or may not proceed from a person, while solace is got from things. Comfort may be merely physical; consolation and solace are spiritual.
