Waiting, or: Weighing

A two-by-four


All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.

Alexandre Dumas (1802 – 1870)
Our weightiest
hopes can
wait, but 
we cannot

      1. Fair point about me not being able to wait. That is certainly true. I am a rather impatient person.

        But that (events, material things, etc) which we hope and dream for don’t really “wait”. Things we hope for either happen or they don’t happen.

  1. So emotional and evocative. You make the most profound statements with brevity, and it amazes me because I struggle with it personally in poetry. You know where it hits, and that’s a sign of an amazing writer!
