The Victory of Patience

Written by: Helen Hunt Jackson | Biography
 | Quotes (3) |
 Armed of the gods! Divinest conqueror! 
What soundless hosts are thine! Nor pomp, nor state, 
Nor token, to betray where thou dost wait.
All Nature stands, for thee, ambassador; Her forces all thy serfs, for peace or war.
greatest and least alike, thou rul'st their fate,-- The avalanch chained until its century's date, The mulberry leaf made robe for emperor! Shall man alone thy law deny? --refuse Thy healing for his blunders and his sins? Oh, make us thine! Teach us who waits best sues; Who longest waits of all most surely wins.
When Time is spent, Eternity begins.
To doubt, to chafe, to haste, doth God accuse.
