A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue.
Woodrow T. Wilson
All things come to him who waits - provided he knows what he is waiting for.
Beware the fury of a patient man.
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
Everything comes gradually and at its appointed hour.
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
Genius is eternal patience.
Saint Francis De Sales
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew.
He that can have patience can have what he will.
If you add a little to a little, and then do it again, soon that little shall be much.
