A Quote by Thomas Moore on politics, death, nature, respect, worldview, interrelated, connections, unconnected, conscience, neglect, patience, and imagination

Only in a thoroughly unrelated world can we poison nature without conscience, neglect our children and the poor, and righteously slay thousands of enemy soldiers because we don't have the patience or imagination for negotiation.

Thomas Moore (1779 - 1852)

A Quote by Kent Nerburn on age, patience, teachers, elders, lessons, and change

It is not easy for a man to be as great as a mountain or a forest.  But that is why the creator gave them to us as teachers.  Now that I am old I Iook once more toward them for lessons, instead of trying to understand the ways of men. They tell me to be patient.  They tell me I cannot change what is, I can only hope to change what will become.  Let the grasses grow over our scars, they say, and let flowers bloom over our wounds.

A Quote by Marsha Sinetar on acceptance, patience, vocation, career, and inner-man

Self-acceptance does not come about in practice overnight. Neither does learning how to be patient with ourselves. But if we have any hope of finding a dream vocation or career, we must be on good terms with our hearts, so that we can discover what it is that our inner-man of the heart (to use St. Peter's term) wants to do. For this, patience and self-acceptance are required.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on gift from the sea, gift, gifts, sea, patience, faith, and beach

The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach -- waiting for a gift from the sea.

A Quote by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso on patience, peace, and ego

Patience is a strength, not a weakness; and if by practicing patience we stop retaliating to harm and criticism, people will gradually come to understand that our real nature is very special

A Quote by Epictetus on fig, seed, patience, and time

No great thing is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen.

Epictetus (c. 50 - 120)

A Quote by Eric Butterworth on dream, success, confidence, patience, and courage

Dare to conceive of greater things for yourself. Dare to see yourself as strong, confident, successful, and possessed of the patience and stability to keep on moving in the direction of your dreams.

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream you shall become.
Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be.
Your idea is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."
