The American minister and writer Philip Brooks (1835-93); was noted for his poise and quiet manner. However, one day a friend saw him feverishly pacing the floor like a caged lion and asked him what the trouble was.

"The trouble is," replied Brooks, "that I’m in a hurry, but God isn’t!"

(From a sermon by Gordon Curley, Beware of Detours, 11/18/2010)
