patience

A Quote by Sadhu Sundar Singh on god, men, patience, and world

God's patience is infinite. Men, like small kettles, boil quickly with wrath at the least wrong. Not so God. If God were as wrathful, the world would have been a heap of ruins long ago.

A Quote by Ruth Perry on age, blessings, contentment, heart, humility, humor, kindness, patience, sage, and serenity

Dear Lord, who made the face of me not all that I would have it be, not really homely, only plain, but strong and patient in the main. Yet one, a man apart, who found me fair and gave his heart. Now Lord, that I have grown more sage . . . into middle age. I only ask, as face grows lines of countenance, it be described as kind; that wrinkles by my eyes will show a little humor as I go; that I may view my humble scene with glance of one content, serene, through grateful, shining eyes that see the blessings you have given me.

A Quote by Rita Buchanan on achievement, commitment, control, empowerment, patience, people, persistence, reward, satisfaction, sculpture, vision, and world

[A sheared hedge] . . . "signifies vision, persistence, and patience - qualities we crave in today's world. Yet many people do make the commitment. They create hedges, care for them eagerly, and gain much satisfaction from the process. Why? Perhaps it's because shaping a hedge is the closest most of us will ever come to doing sculpture or erecting a monument, but I think the real reward is more mundane. Shearing is very empowering - it gives you an exhilarating sense of control and achievement. You can stand back afterward and say, look what I've done.

A Quote by Richard Clarke Cabot on food, patience, and work

Work is the best of all psychotherapy, in my opinion. . . . As well might we expect a patient to recover without food as to recover without work.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on labor, nature, patience, and thought

Man was born to be rich, or grow rich by use of his faculties, by the union of thought with nature. Property is an intellectual production. The game requires coolness, right reasoning, promptness, and patience in the players. Cultivated labor drives out brute labor.
