A Quote by Charlie Chaplin on beauty, needs, patience, purpose, questions, and understanding

I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood. If it does need additional interpretation by someone other than the creator, then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose.

A Quote by Charles Lamb on borrowing, business, character, debt, friendship, good, money, patience, and people

I am accounted by some people as a good man. How cheap that character is acquired! Pay your debts, don't borrow money, nor twist your kitten's neck off, nor disturb a congregation, etc., your business is done. I know things of myself, which would make every friend I have fly me as a plague patient.

A Quote by Charles Dudley Warner on alienation, garden, hope, leadership, patience, philosophy, resignation, understanding, and value

The principal value of a garden is not understood. It is not to give the possessors vegetables and fruit (that can be better and cheaper done by the market-gardeners), but to teach him patience and philosophy, and the higher virtues - hope deferred, and expectations blighted, leading directly to resignation, and sometimes to alienation.

A Quote by Charles Alexander Eastman on character, control, courage, dignity, endurance, mystery, patience, self-control, and silence

If you ask him: "What is silence?" he will answer, "It is the Great Mystery! The holy silence is His voice!" If you ask: "What are the fruits of silence?" he will say: "They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity, and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character."

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on balance, darkness, happiness, justice, life, meaning, and patience

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. 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 to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
