Rolling Thunder (1982)
by Michael Colgrass

Rolling Thunder looked long at his son before he spoke.  Then he spoke quietly.  "Now you know what has to be done here, so why don't you wait until you feel those things are done, and then speak? ... If you're feeling impatient, then you're where you think about time, and if you're thinking about time, you should be able to think about the order of things.  Things have their order.  You know there are certain things I have to do that I can't do until I do other things first."

Quote from the book, Rolling Thunder by Doug Boyd (1974)
