Yes, we spend a lot of our time waiting. We wait for buses, we wait in the lines, every day has its moments lost while we wait.
But if we want to do something, among all other things that we must do, we also must wait for it.
And i guess life achievements are made of many small elements together, of our hard work, pursuits, dreams, and of our waiting.
Henry David Thoreau said that the price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.
