Waiting Quotes

"Time felt slower when we do nothing but wait." — Toba Beta (My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut)

"It is very strange that the years teach us patience - that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting. "

"When you chose to follow the way of purity, did you expect it to be easy? When you decided to wait for the best, did you think that waiting would be fun? Did you think that your faith would not be tested? When you decided to take the narrow path, did no one warn you that difficulties, hardship, and tears would be part of the journey, and that you would often face rejection from others and be forced to walk alone? My daughter, that which you wait for the longest you treasure the most, and through much struggle the prize is won."
— Sarah Mally (Before You Meet Prince Charming: A Guide to Radiant Purity)

"We never live; we are always in the expectation of living."
— Voltaire

"You know, I wouldn’t have done this a month ago. I wouldn’t have done it then. Then I was avoiding. Now I’m just waiting. Things happen to me. They do. They have to go ahead and happen. You watch – you wait… Things still happen here and something is waiting to happen to me. I can tell. Recently my life feels like a bloodcurdling joke. Recently my life has taken on *form* Something is waiting. I am waiting. Soon, it will stop waiting – any day now. Awful things can happen any time. This is the awful thing."
— Martin Amis

“Whatever we are waiting for -- peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance -- it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.”
Sarah Ban Breathnach Quotes
