“The longer you have to wait for something,
the more you will appreciate it when it finally arrives.
The harder you have to fight for something,
the more priceless it will become once you achieve it.
And the more pain you have to endure on your journey,
the sweeter the arrival at your destination.
All good things are worth waiting for
and worth fighting for.”
~ Susan Gale
“If failure has the strength
to turn your life into bitterness itself,
then patience has the strength
to turn your life into the sweetest joy.
Do not surrender to fate after a single failure.
Failure, at most, precedes success.”
~ Sri Chinmoy more
“Patience is the calm acceptance
that things can happen in a different order
than the one you have in mind.”
~ David G. Allen
“Patience is not simply the ability to wait,
it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”
~ Joyce Meyer
“If we could look into each other’s hearts
and understand the unique challenges each of us face,
I think we would treat each other
much more gently, with more love,
patience, tolerance, and care.”
~ Marvin J Ashton more
“Flowers only bloom when they are ready.
People are the same way.
You cannot rush or force them open
just because you think it’s time.
~ Timber Hawkeye more
“Have patience with everything that
remains unsolved in your heart.
Try to love the questions themselves,
like locked rooms and like books
written in a foreign language.
Do not now look for the answers.
They cannot now be given to you
because you could not live them.
It is a question of experiencing everything.
At present you need to live the question.
Perhaps you will gradually,
without even noticing it,
find yourself experiencing the answer,
some distant day.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke more
