~ Time and Tide ~ Weekly Photo Challenge – Time ~

The origin of the phrase Time and Tide wait for no man, is uncertain, “although it’s clear that the phrase is ancient and that it predates modern English. The earliest known record is from St. Marher, 1225: “And te tide and te time bat tu iboren were, schal beon iblescet.”

P1050163

A version in modern English – “the tide abides for, tarrieth for no man, stays no man, tide nor time tarrieth no man” evolved into the present day version. (The Phrase Finder)

Time and tide wait for no man is also attributed to Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400) Brainy Quotes
