Famous quotes containing the word wait:

    Sickness disgusts us with death, and we wish to get well, which is a way of wishing to live. But weakness and suffering, with manifold bodily woes, soon discourage the invalid from trying to regain ground: he tires of those respites which are but snares, of that faltering strength, those ardors cut short, and that perpetual lying in wait for the next attack.
    Marguerite Yourcenar (1903–1987)

    Wait a minute, wait a minute, you ain’t heard nothing yet. Wait a minute I tell you. You ain’t heard nothing yet. Do you want to hear “Toot, Toot, Tootsie?”
    Alfread A. Cohen, U.S., and Louis Silver. Jakie Rabinowitz (Al Jolson)

    Now wait a minute, wait a minute. What kind of a deal is this? You can’t go shoving just anybody’s body off on me.
    Seton I. Miller (1902–1974)
