„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

"The Cottage".
Fairies and Fusiliers (1917)
Contexto: 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.

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

„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

Song lyrics, Hunky Dory (1971)
Contexto: 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.

„Lopat was the cutest of the gang, the easiest to catch because he had almost perfect control of every pitch at different speeds. He made batters impatient. They couldn't wait for what looked so easy to hit and they'd swing at his motion.“

—  Yogi Berra American baseball player, manager, coach 1925 - 2015
