: I have always known of the phrase or proverb of: "Time and tide wait for no man" Does anyone know where this comes from and who said it first. Where would I find it in print? And am I quoting it correctly? Thanks all!

TIME AND TIDE WAIT FOR NO ONE MAN - Proverb from the late 14th century. "The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations," Fifth Edition, edited by Elizabeth Knowles (Oxford University Press, Oxford and New York, 2001).
