2. "[...] 'We leiden ons leven weliswaar allemaal in de verwachting van betere tijden, maar tegelijk verlangen we vaak met spijt terug naar het verleden. Het heden beschouwen we daarentegen als iets heel tijdelijks, als niet anders dan de weg naar ons doel. Om die reden zien de meeste mensen, wanneer ze op hun leven terugkijken, dat ze voortdurend ad interim hebben geleefd, en stellen ze tot hun verbazing vast dat wat ze zo achteloos en zonder ervan genoten te hebben voorbij hebben laten gaan precies de dingen waren in de verwachting waarvan ze geleefd hadden."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
3. "To attain something desired is to discover how vain it is; and…though we live all our lives in expectation of better things, we often at the same time long regretfully for what is past. The present, on the other hand, is regarded as something quite temporary and serving only as the road to our goal. That is why most men discover when they look back on their life that they have the whole time been living ad interim, and are surprised to see that which they let go by so unregarded and unenjoyed was precisely their life, was precisely in expectation of which they lived."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer

Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

What if they feel spurned?""Ah, but in the interim, think of the lovely gifts they can make you. Monique bragged that one of her boys made her silver and wood hair sticks as anti-supernatural weapons. With amethyst inlay.

10. "Most things are forgotten over time. Even the war itself, the life-and-death struggle people went through is now like something from the distant past. We're so caught up in our everyday lives that events of the past are no longer in orbit around our minds. There are just too many things we have to think about everyday, too many new things we have to learn. But still, no matter how much time passes, no matter what takes place in the interim, there are some things we can never assign to oblivion, memories we can never rub away. They remain with us forever, like a touchstone."
Author: Haruki Murakami

That fact was so clear that she couldn't believe she had ever doubted it. She loved him, just as she had loved him when they parted three years before. Just as she had loved him all throughout the interim of years that separated them."
Author: Jess Michaels

15. "Six-Pack didn't despise George W. Bush to the degree that Ketchum did, but she thought the president was a smirking twerp and a dumbed-down daddy's boy, and she agreed with Ketchum's assessment that Bush would be as worthless as wet crap in even the smallest crisis. If a fight broke out between two small dogs, for example, Ketchum claimed that Bush would call the fire department and ask them to bring a hose; then the president would position himself at a safe distance from the dogfight, and wait for the firemen to show up. The part Pam liked best about this assessment was that Ketchum said the president would instantly look self-important, and would appear to be actively involved--that is, once the firefighters and their hose arrived, and provided there was anything remaining of the mess the two dogs might have made of each other in the interim."
Author: John Irving

Oh, and—" I grabbed the bars with both hands, "I'm a little distracted right now by the fact that I'm being held by a psychotic killer."Ashley cocked a single eyebrow, a look of mild amusement on her face.

21. "After you die, you go to be "with Christ," but your body remains dead. Describing where and what you are in that interim period is difficult, and for the most part the New Testament writers don't try. Call it "heaven" if you like, but don't imagine that it's the end of all things. What is promised after that interim period is a new bodily life within God's new world.I am constantly amazed that many contemporary Christians find this confusing. It was second nature to the early church and to many subsequent Christian generations. It was what they believed and taught. If we have grown up believing and teaching something else, it's time we rubbed our eyes and read our texts again."
Author: N. T. Wright

("Interim")"
