That you need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. Your own village means that you're not alone, that you know there's something of you in the people and the plants and the soil, that even when you are not there it waits to welcome you.
While God waits for his temple to be built of love, men bring stones.rabindranath tagore
On all the line a sudden vengeance waits, And frequent hearses shall besiege your gates.Alexander Pope
Dishonor waits on perfidy. A man should blush to think a falsehood; it is the crime of cowards.
Between two seas the sea-bird's wing makes halt, Wind-weary; while with lifting head he waits For breath to reinspire him from the gates That open still toward sunrise on the vault High-domed of morning.algernon charles swinburne
The lotus flower is troubled At the sun's resplendent light; With sunken head and sadly She dreamily waits for the night.Heinrich Heine
Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.
He that always waits upon God is ready whenever He calls. Neglect not to set your accounts even; he is a happy man who to lives as that death at all times may find him at leisure to die.owen feltham
Conditions are seldom ideal, and if one waits long enough for ideal conditions one is just making excuses.bernd heinrich
The while He sits whose name is Love,And waits, as Noah did, for the dove,To wit if she would fly to him.He waits for us, while, houseless things,We beat about with bruised wingsOn the dark floods and water-springs,The ruined world, the desolate sea;With open windows from the primeAll night, all day, He waits sublime,Until the fulness of the timeDecreed from His eternity.jean ingelow
While truth is always bitter, pleasantness waits upon evildoing.jerome
This goin' ware glory waits ye haint one agreeable feetur.james russell lowell
Go where glory waits thee;But while fame elates thee,Oh! still remember me.thomas moore
He that waits on another man's trencher, makes many a late dinner.
Ideally a painter (and, generally, an artist) should not become conscious of his insights: without taking the detour through his reflective processes, and incomprehensibly to himself, all his progress should enter so swiftly into the work that he is unable to recognise them in the moment of transition. Alas, the artist who waits in ambush there, watching, detaining them, will find them transformed like the beautiful gold in the fairy tale which cannot remain gold because some small detail was not taken care of.Rainer Maria Rilke
Cease, cease, wayward Mortal! I dare not unveil The shadows that float o’er Eternity’s vale; Nought waits for the good but a spirit of Love, That will hail their blest advent to regions above. For Love, Mortal, gleams through the gloom of my sway, And the shades which surround me fly fast at its ray.Percy Bysshe Shelley
A hidden spark of the dream sleeps in the forest and waits in the celestial spheres of the brain.
The mightier man, the mightier is the thing What makes him honour'd, or begets him hate; For greatest scandal waits on greatest state.william shakespeare
He who waits to do a great deal of good at once, will never do any thing.
Be sure that your soul is never so intensely alive as when in the deepest abnegation it waits hushed before God .
She waits for me; my lady Earth, Smiles and waits and sighs; I'll say her nay, and hide away, Then take her by surprise.mary mapes dodge
There is no unbelief; Whoever plants a seed beneath the sod And waits to see it push away the clod, He trusts in God.
Through the window I can see Rooks above the cherry-tree, Sparrows in the violet bed, Bramble-bush and bumble-bee, And old red bracken smoulders still Among boulders on the hill, Far too bright to seem quite dead. But old Death, who can't forget, waits his time and watches yet, waits and watches by the door.robert graves
