20+ Quotes About Waiting | Waiting Quotes

“You usually have to wait for that which is worth waiting for.” – Craig Bruce

“Don’t wait for your ship to come in – swim out to it.” – Jerry Smith

“I had tended to view waiting as mere passivity. When I looked it up in my dictionary however, I found that the words passive and passion come from the same Latin root, pati, which means to endure. Waiting is thus both passive and passionate. It’s a vibrant, contemplative work. It means descending into self, into God, into the deeper labyrinths of prayer. It involves listening to disinherited voices within, facing the wounded holes in the soul, the denied and undiscovered, the places one lives falsely. It means struggling with the vision of who we really are in God and molding the courage to live that vision.” – Sue Monk Kidd

“Spread your wings – today. Why wait?” – Jonathan Lockwood Huie
