But its fruit is sweet…

Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.

Joyce Meyer (b. 1943)

Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.

Napoleon Hill (1883 โ€“ 1970)

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 take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.

Carl Jung (1875 โ€“ 1961)

Beware the fury of a patient man.

John Dryden (1631 โ€“ 1700)

We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.

Helen Keller (1880 โ€“ 1968)

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712 โ€“ 1778)

I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.

Paulo Coelho (b. 1947)

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.

Robert H. Schuller (1926 โ€“ 2015)

Have patience with all things; but, first of all with yourself.

Saint Francis de Sales (1567 โ€“ 1622)

Our patience will achieve more than our force.

Edmund Burke (1729 โ€“ 1797)
