delay

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on delay, divinity, knowledge, time, and path

We invite all to serve the Savior and walk in His paths straightway. There is an urgency for all of us who have this knowledge of His divinity to act upon it without hesitation or delay. The time is now.

A Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier on crime, darkness, day, delay, evil, future, god, good, time, and truth

God's ways seem dark, but, soon or late, They touch the shining hills of day; The evil cannot brook delay, The good can well afford to wait, Give ermined knaves their hour of crime; Yet have the future grand and great, The safe appeal of Truth to Time!

Implied Subjection, but requir'd with gentle sway, And by her yielded, by him best receiv'd,-- Yielded with coy submission, modest pride, And sweet, reluctant, amorous delay.

A Quote by John Milton on delay, god, good, grace, husbands, knowledge, laws, modesty, praise, pride, study, women, and yielding

For contemplation he and valour formed; For softness she and sweet attractive grace, He for God only, she for God in him; His fair large front and eye sublime declare Absolute rule; and hyacinthine locks Round from his parted forelock manly hung Clustering, but not beneath his shoulders broad. Which implied Subjection, but required with gentle sway And by her yielded, by him best received; Yielded with coy submission, modest pride, And sweet reluctant amorous delay. . . . God is thy law, thou mine: to know no more Is woman's happiest knowledge and her praise. . . . For nothing lovelier can be found In woman, than to study household good, And good works in her husband to promote.

A Quote by Edward Young on delay, immortality, men, mortality, prudence, purpose, and thought

At thirty man suspects himself a fool; Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan; At fifty chides his infamous delay, Pushes his prudent purpose to resolve; In all the magnanimity of thought Resolves; and re-resolves; then dies the same. And why? Because he thinks himself immortal. All men think all men mortal but themselves.
