“I’ve started to realize that waiting is an art, that waiting achieves things.  Waiting can be very, very powerful.  Time is a valuable thing.  If you can wait two years, you can sometimes achieve something that you could not achieve today, however hard you worked, however much money you threw up in the air, however many times you banged your head against the wal. . . .”

— Dennis Wholey, The Courage to Change, quoted in Codependent No More, by Melody Beattie
