The Pendulum

Basil Lanneau Gildersleeve, "Brief Mention," American Journal of Philology 29.3 (1908) 368-380 (at 368):
To be hopelessly behind the times means nothing more to me than the hopelessness of living until the pendulum swings back, until the whirligig comes round. The Fool's Paradise out of which you have been thrust is sure to become once more the Land of Beulah, if you wait long enough. The only question is whether it is worth while to wait.
