Wait Quotes

Most of life is routine - dull and grubby, but routine is the momentum that keeps a man going. If you wait for inspiration you'll be standing on the corner after the parade is a mile down the street.

Ben Nicholas

It is better to meet danger than to wait for it. He that is on a lee shore, and foresees a hurricane, stands out to sea and encounters a storm to avoid a shipwreck.

Charles Caleb Colton

Do not let the loud utterances of your own wills anticipate, nor drown, the still, small voice in which God speaks. Bridle impatience till He does. If you cannot hear His whisper, wait till you do. Take care of running before you are sent. Keep your wills in equipoise till God's hand gives the impulse and direction.

Alexander MacLaren

I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.

Og Mandino

It is probably prudent to wait and delay. At some point this year the market will turn around.

Jeffrey Kagan

I don't wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.

Pearl S. Buck

Climate change is real. The science is compelling. And the longer we wait, the harder the problem will be to solve.

Senator John Kerry

The important work of moving the world forward does not wait to be done by perfect men.

George Eliot

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.

Anne Frank

Blessings ever wait on virtuous deeds, and though a late, a sure reward succeeds.

William Congreve

Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle

Abraham Lincoln

The thin and precarious crust of decency is all that separates any civilization, however impressive, from the hell of anarchy or systematic tyranny which lie in wait beneath the surface

Aldous Leonard Huxley

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring

Rogers Hornsby

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


Those who wait until all the lights are on green before starting will never leave home.

Zig Ziglar
