Time waits for no one.
~ English Expression, American [19046]

Title inspiration for one of the few ballards written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (with a strong contribution by Mick Taylor). The Rolling Stones from It's Only Rock and Roll, 1974:

"Time can tear down a building or destroy a woman's face
Hours are like diamonds, don't let them waste

"Drink in your summer, gather your corn
The dreams of the night time will have vanished by dawn

"And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me
