    Smile only time will tell/prove

    I think God exists, but only time will tell/prove if there are spirits or souls after people pass away.




    Do both tell and prove fit into the above sample and mean about the same? Thanks.

    Angli,

    'Only time will tell' is used more frequently. Both sentences, however are correct and mean about the same.
