This ‘wait’ has almost always meant ‘never.’ We must come to see with the distinguished jurist of yesterday that ‘justice too long delayed is justice denied.'” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

But if fissile material is provided to Saddam Hussein, he’ll have a nuclear weapon within a year, so I’d say the year is the outside timetable.” ~ Richard Armitage

    through this day with a quiet heart,

    He is in control, a peaceful certainty
    that your life is in His hands,
    a deep trust in His plan and purposes,
    and a thankful disposition,
    toward all that He allows.
    He wants you to put your faith in Him,
    not in a timetable.
    He wants you to wait on Him
    and wait for Him.
    In His perfect way He will put everything
    together, see to every detail…
    arrange every circumstance…
    and order every step to bring
    to pass what He has for you.” ~ Roy Lessin
  61. “So far I had been travelling alone with my handbook and my Western Railway timetable: I was happiest finding my own way and did not require a liaison man.

Bush
