Saying in original language: Time will tell.
English translation of the saying: Time will tell.
Language: English
Meaning in English: That means that even if you are currently confused about a matter and don't know how to solve a problem or so, you will find a solution when you just let things be as they are for a while. This saying basically implies the phenomenon, that our brain continues to tackle a problem even if we do something totally different like e.g. sleep. It happened to me several times already that I found a problem unsolvebale on one day and the next day, all of sudden, the solution was very clear. Magic ;-)
