Time Is



Short poem on flowered stationary. 8.5 inches by 5 inches.

Time is
Too slow for those who want
Too swift for those who fear
Too long for those who grieve
Too short for those who rejoice
But for those who love
Time is eternity.


Found in "Empire Falls" by Richard Russo, Vintage, 2001.

I really love this quotation. You made a mistake there, it's 'wait' not 'want'.

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. -- Henry Van Dyke
