Frequently Asked Question
Can you tell me the origin of the quote, "and this too shall pass?"
You are probably thinking of a poem by Lanta Wilson Smith, entitled, This
Too Shall Pass Away. The phrase is common and found in many writings. It
does not appear in that exact form in our English Bibles. 2 Peter 3:10-11
suggests the idea that earthly things shall pass and we therefore ought to
live for eternity.
