„But old Death, who can't forget,
Waits his time and watches yet,
Waits and watches by the door.“

—  Robert Graves English poet and novelist 1895 - 1985
Context: Through the window I can see Rooks above the cherry-tree, Sparrows in the violet bed, Bramble-bush and bumble-bee, And old red bracken smoulders still Among boulders on the hill, Far too bright to seem quite dead. But old Death, who can't forget, Waits his time and watches yet, Waits and watches by the door. "The Cottage".

„You have to imagine
a waiting that is not impatient
because it is timeless.“

—  R.S. Thomas, The Echoes Return Slow
"The Echoes Return Slow" in The Echoes Return Slow (1988)

„Still don't know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild.“

—  David Bowie British musician, actor, record producer and arranger 1947 - 2016
Context: Still don't know what I was waiting for And my time was running wild. A million dead-end streets and Every time I thought I'd got it made It seemed the taste was not so sweet. So I turned myself to face me But I've never caught a glimpse Of how the others must see the faker I'm much too fast to take that test. Changes
