 Lane.Lane (The) 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
’Tis a long lane that has no turning. Every calamity has an ending. The darkest day, stop till to-morrow, will have passed away.   1
“Hope peeps from a cloud on our squad,
Whose beams have been long in deep mourning;
’Tis a lane, let me tell you, my lad,
Very long that has never a turning.”
Peter Pindar: Great Cry and Little Wool, epist. 1.
