Famous quotes containing the word wait:

    Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 11:3.

    John the Baptist, by word of messenger, to Jesus.

    Ample make this bed.
    Make this bed with awe;
    In it wait till judgment break
    Excellent and fair.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    I respect guilt. It is a dangerous but sometimes useful beast. The guilt that made me want to solve all my children’s problems meant trouble. The guilt that made me question my role in our mother-daughter squabbles proved helpful. Yes, I care about my kids’ problems, and I long to make suggestions. But these days I wait for children to ask for help, and I give it sparingly. Some things can’t be fixed, and I tell them so.
    Susan Ferraro (20th century)
