Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them--every day begin the task anew.

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on charity, judgement, benefit of doubt, differences, weakness, shortcomings, patience, offend, and forgiveness

Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don't judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone's differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another's weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other.

A Quote by Seth Godin on patience and customers

The media wants overnight successes (so they have someone to tear down). Ignore them. Ignore the early adopter critics that never have enough to play with. Ignore your investors that want proven tactics and predictable instant results. Listen instead to your real customers, to your vision and make something for the long haul. Because that's how long it's going to take, guys.
