patience

A Quote by Aristotle on art, nature, patience, and purpose

A Quote by Angel Abrea on betrayal, criticism, faith, fatherhood, friendship, impatience, journeys, life, patience, travel, and path

When on life's journey it becomes our lot to travel with criticism of skeptics, the hate of some, the rejection of others, the impatience of many, or a friend's betrayal, we must be able to pray in such a manner that an abiding faith and a strong testimony that the Lord will be with us to the end, will compel us to say, "Nevertheless, Father, Thy will be done, and with Thy help, in patience I will follow firmly on the path that takes me back to Thee."

Angel Abrea (1933 -)
