#1. Though I didn't quite plan it that way, I had my two sons at just about the same ages my mother saw me and my sister off to college, and my first novel was published when I was 46. This 'tardiness' isn't something I'm proud of, but I'm happy to be an inspiration to others who arrive at these milestones later than most of us do. - Author: Julia Glass
Tardiness quotes by Julia Glass
#2. Tardiness is next to wickedness in a society relentless in its consumption of time as both a good and a service
as tweet and Instagram, film clip and sound bite, as sporting event, investment opportunity, Tinder hookup, and interest rate
its value measured not by its texture or its substance but by the speed of its delivery, a distinction apparent to Andy Warhol when he supposedly said that any painting that takes longer than five minutes to make is a bad painting. - Author: Lewis H. Lapham
Tardiness quotes by Lewis H. Lapham
#3. For the Christian one dislocating, self-impoverishing hour spent with a child living in a broken-down dump is worth more than all the burial mounds of rhetoric, all the enfeebled good intentions, all the mumbling and fumbling and tardiness of those Christians who are so busy cultivating their own holiness that they cannot hear the anguished cry of the child in the slum. - Author: Brennan Manning
Tardiness quotes by Brennan Manning
#4. My child, I am the Lord Who gives strength in the day of trouble. Come to Me when all is not well with you. Your tardiness in turning to prayer is the greatest obstacle to heavenly consolation, for before you pray earnestly to Me you first seek many comforts and take pleasure in outward things. Thus, all things are of little profit to you until you realize that I am the one Who saves those who trust in Me, and that outside of Me there is no worth-while help, or any useful counsel or lasting remedy. - Author: Thomas A Kempis
Tardiness quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#5. Being early meant being on time. Being on time meant being late. But being late was unacceptable. - Author: L.C. Perry
Tardiness quotes by L.C. Perry
#6. All the evils of France have been produced less by the perversity of the wicked and the violence of fools than by the hesitation of the weak, the compromises of conscience, and the tardiness of patriotism. Let every deputy, every Frenchman show what he feels, what he thinks, and we are saved! - Author: Marquis De Lafayette
Tardiness quotes by Marquis De Lafayette
#7. What - in other words - would modern boredom be without terror? One of the most boring documents of all time is the thick volume of Hitler's Table Talk. He too had people watching movies, eating pastries, and drinking coffee with Schlag while he bored them, while he discoursed theorized expounded. Everyone was perishing of staleness and fear, afraid to go to the toilet. This combination of power and boredom has never been properly examined. Boredom is an instrument of social control. Power is the power to impose boredom, to command stasis, to combine this stasis with anguish. The real tedium, deep tedium, is seasoned with terror and with death.

There were even profounder questions. For instance, the history of the universe would be very boring if one tried to think of it in the ordinary way of human experience. All that time without events! Gases over and over again, and heat and particles of matter, the sun tides and winds, again this creeping development, bits added to bits, chemical accidents - whole ages in which almost nothing happens, lifeless seas, only a few crystals, a few protein compounds developing. The tardiness of evolution is so irritating to contemplate. The clumsy mistakes you see in museum fossils. How could such bones crawl, walk, run? It is agony to think of the groping of the species - all this fumbling, swamp-creeping, munching, preying, and reproduction, the boring slowness with which tissues, organs, and members developed. And then the bored - Author: Saul Bellow
Tardiness quotes by Saul Bellow
#8. Just the minute another person is drawn into some one's life, there begin to arise undreamed-of complexities, and from such a simple beginning as sexual desire we find built up such alarming yet familiar phenomena as fetes, divertissements, telephone conversations, arrangements, plans, sacrifices, train arrivals, meetings, appointments, tardiness, delays, marriages, dinners, small pets and animals, calumny, children, music lessons, yellow shades for the windows, evasions, lethargy, cigarettes, candies, repetition of stories and anecdotes, infidelity, ineptitude, incompatibility, bronchial trouble, and many others, all of which are entirely foreign to the original urge and way off the subject. - Author: E.B. White
Tardiness quotes by E.B. White
#9. Most leave to be on time, thus always late. - Author: Brian Spellman
Tardiness quotes by Brian Spellman
#10. Flying has changed how we imagine our planet, which we have seen whole from space, so that even the farthest nations are ecological neighbors. It has changed our ideas about time. When you can gird the earth at 1,000 m.p.h., how can you endure the tardiness of a plumber? Most of all, flying has changed our sense of our body, the personal space in which we live, now elastic and swift. I could be in Bombay for afternoon tea if I wished. My body isn't limited by its own weaknesses; it can rush through space. - Author: Diane Ackerman
Tardiness quotes by Diane Ackerman
#11. Sometimes they almost made me feel glad that I had a few extra years to play my depression out with therapy and other means, because I think its useful in youth- unless suicide or drug abuse are the alternatives- to have some faith in the mind to cure itself, to not rush to doctors or diagnosis's ... I sometimes worry that part of what creates depression in young people is their own, and their parents, and the whole worlds impatience with allowing the phases of life to run their course. We will very likely soon be living in a society that confuses disease with normal life if the panic and rush to judgment and labeling do not slow down a bit. Somewhere between the unbelievable tardiness that the medical profession was guilty of in administering proper treatment to me and the eagerness to with which practitioners prescribe Ritalin for 8 year old boys and Paxil for 14 year old girls, there is a sane course of action. - Author: Elizabeth Wurtzel
Tardiness quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#12. She was now overburdened with thoughts of tardiness and broken wheels while her solicitor's emissary thought nothing of being mysterious. - Author: Cindy Anstey
Tardiness quotes by Cindy Anstey
#13. Only nine States have been represented since my arrival 'till within three days. There are now Eleven States barely represented. This tardiness in the States or their Delegates, besides retarding the most important Business makes it exceeding fatiguing to those that do attend. - Author: William Whipple
Tardiness quotes by William Whipple
#14. All my life, he said, I been witness to people showin up where they was supposed to be at various times after they'd said they'd be there. I never heard one yet that didnt have a reason for it.
Yessir.
But there aint but one reason.
Yessir.
You know what it is?
No sir.
It's that their word's no good. That's the only reason there ever was or ever will be. - Author: Cormac McCarthy
Tardiness quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#15. Granny said tardiness was nothing but bad manners, and that people with bad manners lacked character. Erlene - Author: Scott Pratt
Tardiness quotes by Scott Pratt

Tardiness quotes by Xela Ffonrims
#17. I hate when people don't keep their word or they are late. Tardiness is a big pet peeve of mine. - Author: Tim Hudson
Tardiness quotes by Tim Hudson
#18. She descended, not through the nearest hole as was her childhood habit, but more sedately down a marble staircase that began life in the upper world as an innocent stairway from a cellar door. Below, Faey complained about her tardiness, but was too busy to press for explanations. A gentleman from the palace had sent a request, with gold, for a method of detecting poison. Mag sighed. It would be a smelly afternoon. - Author: Patricia A. McKillip
Tardiness quotes by Patricia A. McKillip
#19. There are some people who fall short in the being thoughtful department. They aren't being malicious but they certainly tap dance on people's last nerves with their shenanigans. These are the people who are perpetually late, take advantage of their friends in various ways, and children. We know them and we love them and we keep them in our lives but we sometimes wish that they would get their shit together. - Author: Luvvie Ajayi Jones
Tardiness quotes by Luvvie Ajayi Jones
#20. It was the day after Thanksgiving. I was the 3 p.m. backwaiter, but the trains were running irregularly, and while I had heard one sighing into the station as I ran down the stairs, my card was out of money. Which is to say, I was late. - Author: Stephanie Danler
Tardiness quotes by Stephanie Danler
#21. Whether it was work, marriage, or family, I've always been a late bloomer. - Author: Sigourney Weaver
Tardiness quotes by Sigourney Weaver
#22. Carve not upon a stone when I am dead, The praises which remorseful mourners give; To women's graves - a tardy recompense, But speak them while I live. - Author: Elizabeth Chase Allen
Tardiness quotes by Elizabeth Chase Allen
#23. Celerity is tardiness when ardent desire urges. - Author: Publilius Syrus
Tardiness quotes by Publilius Syrus
#24. The want of punctuality is a want of honest principle; for however people may think themselves authorised to rob God and themselves of their own time, they can plead no right to lay a violent hand on the time and duties of their neighbor. - Author: Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna
Tardiness quotes by Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna
#25. A tardiness in nature,
Which often leaves the history unspoke,
That it intends to do. - Author: William Shakespeare
Tardiness quotes by William Shakespeare
#26. The closer I get, the faster I have to go. Otherwise, I might be late to the very place where I'm not even expected. Adding to my tardiness is the fact that I don't even know where I'm going. And I can't get from here to there when I don't even know where I am, let alone where I'm going. All I know is I'm going fast, but not fast enough. - Author: Jarod Kintz
Tardiness quotes by Jarod Kintz
#27. One can speculate that the tardiness and wobbliness of humanity's progress on many of the "eternal problems" of philosophy are due to the unsuitability of the human cortex for philosophical work. On this view, our most celebrated philosophers are like dogs walking on their hind legs - just barely attaining the treshold level of performance required for engaging in the activity at all. - Author: Nick Bostrom
Tardiness quotes by Nick Bostrom
#28. Mr. Klamp laid down the law. No tardiness, no talking above 40 decibels, no untied shoelaces, no visible undergarments, no eating, no chewing gum, no chewing tobacco, no chewing betel nuts, no chewing coca leaves, no chewing out students (unless Mr. Klamp was doing the chewing out), no chewing out teachers (unless ditto), no unnecessary displays of temper (unless ditto), no unnecessary displays of affection (no exceptions), no pets over one ounce or under one ton, and no singing, except in Bulgarian. I began to think Mr Klamp wouldn't be so bad ... - Author: Polly Shulman
Tardiness quotes by Polly Shulman
#29. But Dovey was one of those people who traveled in a medium-size pod of tardiness on which others came to rely. - Author: Barbara Kingsolver
