patience

A Quote by Helen Steiner Rice on beauty, belief, creation, destruction, failure, god, heart, love, miracles, motherhood, mystery, pain, patience, sacrifice, secrets, understanding, and world

A mother's Love is something that no one can explain It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain, It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may For nothing can destroy it or take that love away... It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking... It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems... It is far beyond believing when the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest , brightest gems... It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation, and it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation... A many-spendored miracle man cannot understand And another wondrous evidence of God's tender guiding hand.

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on absence, belief, blessings, conviction, cooperation, effort, evil, good, helpful, men, men and women, optimism, patience, rest, soul, struggle, suffering, women, and world

I can say with conviction that the struggle which evil necessitates is one of the greatest blessings. It makes us strong, patient, helpful men and women. It lets us into the soul of things and teaches us that although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcomings of it. My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good, that it may prevail.

A Quote by Herbert Ernest Bates on appearance, character, climate, expectation, gratitude, incredulity, patience, people, suffering, surprises, and uncertainty

Climate helps to shape the character of peoples, certainly no people more than the English. The uncertainty of their climate has helped to make the English, a long-suffering, phlegmatic, patient people rather insensitive to surprise, stoical against storms,. slightly incredulous at every appearance of the sun, touched by the lyrical gratitude of someone who expects nothing and suddenly receives more than he dreamed.

A Quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick, D.D. on age, atoms, blessings, christianity, courage, day, failure, faith, god, hope, men, nations, patience, and rudeness

It is going to be a long, hard haul; it will require patience, courage, faith that hangs on when hope fails, if we are to tame the rude barbarity of man, so that the atomic age becomes a blessing, not a curse. There never was such a day for the Christian gospel. God help us all in these years ahead to make that gospel live in men and nations!

A Quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick, D.D. on chance, faith, life, love, and patience

The most extraordinary thing about the oyster is this. Irritations set into his shell. He does not like them. But when he cannot get ride of them, he uses the irritation to do the loveliest thing an oyster ever has a chance to do. If there are irritations in our lives today, there is only one prescription: make a pearl. It may have to be a pearl of patience, but anyhow, make a pearl. And it takes faith and I love to do it.

Have you seen a room from which faith has gone? . . . Like a marriage from which love has gone. . . . And patience, patience everywhere like a fog.
