"I said to my mind, be still, and wait without hope

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love
For love would be love of the wrong thing; yet there is faith
But the faith and the hope and the love are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be light, and the stillness the dancing.  - T. S. Eliot, from "East Coker"  The Four Quartets -

"This is the wilderness time,
 when every path is obscure
 and thorns have grown around the words of hope.
This is the time of stone, not bread,
 when even the sunrise feels uncertain
 and everything tastes of bitterness.
This is the time of ashes and dust,
 when darkness clothes our dreams
 and no star shines a guiding light.
This is the time of treading life,
 waiting for the swells to subside and for the chaos to clear.
Be the wings of our strength, O God,
 in this time of wilderness waiting."

 – Keri Wehlander from "600 Blessings and Prayers from around the world" compiled by Geoffrey Duncan -
