faith in the waiting

"Faith" by Edward Burne-Jones;

I said to my soul, 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; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
(T.S. Eliot, "East Coker," Four Quartets
