Famous quotes containing the words time and/or waiting:

    All neighbourly content and easy talk are gone,
    But there’s no good complaining, for money’s rant is on,
    He that’s mounting up must on his neighbour mount
    And we and all the Muses are things of no account.
    They have schooling of their own but I pass their schooling by,
    What can they know that we know that know the time to die?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Those to whom God has imparted religion by feeling of the heart are very fortunate and are rightly convinced. But to those who do not have it, we can give it only by reasoning, waiting for God to give it by feeling of the heart—without which faith is only human and useless for salvation.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
