WAITING Quotes

Every moment has led to this moment. Now is the time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. Together we can create a better world.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

"Human history has been recorded as a succession of wars and changing empires. But a ray of hope has been carried forth throughout the ages by dreamers who have envisioned a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. The Magna Carta, the US Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights were quantum leaps forward in our collective quest for a better world. We still have far to go, but we can help create that better world countless dreamers have imagined, wished for and endeavored to make come true. Every moment has brought us to this moment. We are the ones we've been waiting for to manifest our shared peacetopian dream."
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

I'm tired of dreaming. I'm into doing at the moment. It's, like, let's only have goals that we can go after.
-- Bono

The world is more malleable than you think and it's waiting for you to hammer it into shape.
-- Bono

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
-- William Henry Channing

Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful.
But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.
-- Paulo Coelho

Life was always a matter of waiting for the right moment to act.
-- Paulo Coelho

~ Jean-Michel Cousteau

"I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy.
What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait 'til oil and coal run out before we tackle that."
~ Thomas Edison (1847–1931)

“The individual must not merely wait and criticize, he must defend the cause the best he can. The fate of the world will be such as the world deserves.”
-- Albert Einstein

Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.
-- Dwight D. Eisenhower

The world is all gates, all opportunities,
strings of tension waiting to be struck.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"How wonderful that no one need wait a single moment to improve the world."
-- Anne Frank

"The good news is, we have everything we need now to respond to the challenge of global warming. We have all the technologies we need, more are being developed.... But we should not wait, we cannot wait, we must not wait."
~ Al Gore

Time always seems long to the child who is waiting - for Christmas, for next summer, for becoming a grownup: long also when he surrenders his whole soul to each moment of a happy day.
-- Dag Hammarskjöld

* When you've seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there.”
-- George Harrison

Someone who does not draw strength from himself and who is incapable of finding the meaning of his life within himself will...seek the map to his own orientation somewhere outside himself--in some ideology, organization, or society, and then, however active he may appear to be, he is merely waiting, depending. He waits to see what others will do, or what roles they will assign to him, and he depends on them--and if they don't do anything or if they botch things, he succumbs to disillusion, despair, and ultimately, resignation.
-- Vaclav Havel

Don't wait for anyone to deputize you or authorize you or empower you. You have to just start out with yourself...and put one foot in front of the other.
-- Hazel Henderson

 

Banish the word "struggle" from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
- Elders of the Hopi Nation

 

Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.
-- Anne Lamott
"Our message today is one of hope. It is about potential waiting to be fulfilled: the surest way to meet the global challenges we face now and in the future is to make every mother and child count.
~ Dr. LEE Jong-wook, WHO Secretary-General

The workers of the nation were tired of waiting for corporate industry to right their economic wrongs, to alleviate their social agony and to grant them their political rights. Despairing of fair treatment, they resolved to do something for themselves.
-- John L. Lewis

 

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.

there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

-- Bradley Whitford

Maturity includes the recognition that no one is going to see anything in us that we don't see in ourselves. Stop waiting for a producer. Produce yourself.
-- Marianne Williamson

To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places -- and there are so many -- where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.
-- Howard Zinn
