The unceasing stream of pilgrims to his home at Abbotsford is but one of many indications of his unwaning popularity.
It is, after all is said, the masterpieces that bring the unwaning satisfaction.

Old English wanian "make or become smaller gradually," from Proto-Germanic *wanojanan (cf. Old Saxon wanon, Old Norse vana, Old Frisian wania, Middle Dutch waenen, Old High German wanon "to wane, to grow less"), from *wano- "lacking," from PIE *we-no-, from root *eue- "to leave, abandon, give out" (see vain). Related: Waned; waning; wanes.
