Patience quotes by Raymond Smullyan
#1. It has always puzzled me that so many people have taken it for granted that God favors those who believe in him. Isn't it possible that the actual God is a scientific God who has little patience with beliefs founded on faith rather than evidence? #Quote by Raymond Smullyan
Patience quotes by Craig Robinson
#2. Ever since I can remember, I've always been silly. #Quote by Craig Robinson
Patience quotes by Jack Kornfield
#3. Meditation takes discipline, just like learning how to play piano. If you want to learn how to play the piano, it takes more than a few minutes a day, once a while, here and there. If you really want to learn any important skill, whether it is playing piano or meditation, it grows with perseverance, patience, and systematic training. #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Patience quotes by Maya Angelou
#4. Seek patience and passion in equal amounts. Patience alone will not build the temple. Passion alone will destroy its walls. #Quote by Maya Angelou

Two, you need to build an institution, and you need to scale it up. Choose a leader for philanthropy whom you trust. Three, philanthropy needs patience, tenacity and time. #Quote by Azim Premji
Patience quotes by Floranova B. Msc.

Patience quotes by Donald Trump

Patience quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche

Patience quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#11. Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself? LAO-TZU, Tao-te-Ching #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Patience quotes by Chris Hedges
#12. The rebel, dismissed as impractical and zealous, is chronically misunderstood. Those cursed with timidity, fear, or blindness and those who are slaves to opportunism call for moderation and patience. They distort the language of religion, spirituality, compromise, generosity, and compassion to justify cooperation with systems of power that are bent on our destruction. The rebel is deaf to these critiques. The rebel hears only his or her inner voice, which demands steadfast defiance. Self-promotion, positions of influence, the adulation of the public, and the awards and prominent positions that come with bowing before authority mean nothing to the rebel, who understands that virtue is not rewarded. The rebel expects nothing and gets nothing. But for the rebel, to refuse to struggle, to refuse to rebel, is to commit spiritual and moral suicide. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Patience quotes by Roberto Juarroz
#13. The Snow Has Transformed the World Into A Cemetery"

The snow has turned the world into a cemetery
but the world was already a cemetery,
and the snow only has come to announce it.

The snow has come only to point out,
with its slender and jointless finger,
the real and scandalous protagonist.

The snow is a fallen angel
An angel who has lost patience. #Quote by Roberto Juarroz
Patience quotes by J.D. Robb
#14. I hate patience. Slows everything down. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Patience quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#15. It is perhaps no use now to reply to your actual words; for what I could say about your disposition to doubt or about your inability to bring your outer and inner life into harmony, or about anything else that oppresses you - : it is always what I have said before: always the wish that you might be able to find patience enough in yourself to endure, and single-heartedness enough to believe; that you might win increasing trust in what is difficult, and in your solitude among other people. And for the rest, let life happen to you. Believe me: life is right, at all events. And #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Patience quotes by Hyman Rickover
#16. Good ideas and innovations must be driven into existence by courage and patience. #Quote by Hyman Rickover
Patience quotes by Sandra Rogers
#17. The myth that morality and fidelity are old-fashioned and trite can imprison more than just one individual as generations are affected by the choices perpetuated by this lie. The myth that withholding judgment or having charity means that all values are relative and should be given equal importance or loyalty creates a heavy chain that eventually traps a person in doubt and disaffection, leaving him or her to be constantly "driven with the wind and tossed" (see James 1:6). However, confidence that Christ honors those who honor him (see 1 Samuel 2:30) provides an anchor to our souls (see Ether 12:4) whereby we are capable of giving affirmative answers to those who question the "reason of the hope that is in [us]" (1 Peter 3:15). I remember one of my saddest moments as a faculty member at BYU. One of my students came to me in emotional tatters. She had come to BYU looking for a supportive community that shared her values, something she had not enjoyed being the only Mormon in her high school. Instead her peers at BYU teased, sneered at, and demeaned her because she was not willing to watch an R-rated movie. How proud I was of her! Despite the hurt of rejection "by her own," her faith carried her through the social prison created by her peers. To "stand in holy places, and be not moved" (D&C 87:8) in today's world requires faith, courage, poise, and patience. #Quote by Sandra Rogers
Patience quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#18. Prudence, patience, labor, valor; these are the stars that rule the career of mortals. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Patience quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#19. With patience endurance, you can survive any storm. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Patience quotes by Kelly Minter
#20. I think we would do much better as a whole if we focused more compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience than on how all the non-Christians are ruining society with their bad behavior and politics. #Quote by Kelly Minter
Patience quotes by Jack London
#21. From then on it was war between them. Spitz, as lead-dog and acknowledged master of the team, felt his supremacy threatened by this strange Southland dog. And strange Buck was to him, for of the many Southland dogs he had known, not one had shown up worthily in camp and on trail. They were all too soft, dying under the toil, the frost, and starvation. Buck was the exception. He alone endured and prospered, matching the husky in strength, savagery, and cunning. Then he was a masterful dog, and what made him dangerous was the fact that the club of the man in the red sweater had knocked all blind pluck and rashness out of his desire for mastery. He was preeminently cunning, and could bide his time with a patience that was nothing less than primitive. #Quote by Jack London
Patience quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#22. To train the mind, you must exercise the patience and determination it takes to shape that steel. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Patience quotes by Hudson Taylor
#23. There are three indispensable requirements for a missionary: 1. Patience 2. Patience 3. Patience. #Quote by Hudson Taylor
Patience quotes by Vincent De Paul
#24. I am the only wretch who keeps on heaping new iniquities and abominations on myself. O Monsieur, how merciful God is to put up with me with so much patience and forbearance, and how weak and miserable I am to abuse his mercies so greatly! #Quote by Vincent De Paul
Patience quotes by Paul Theroux
#25. Basically, what you find out is the limits of your patience and your strength and your capacity to adapt. You find that out in travel and being alone and being tested. So that's a great thing. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Patience quotes by Vanna Bonta
#26. Patience is being friends with Time. #Quote by Vanna Bonta
Patience quotes by Rick Warren
#27. Patience is a form of faith. It says, "I trust God. I believe that God is bigger than this problem." #Quote by Rick Warren
Patience quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#28. Off to one side his fine white teacup waited for him with a patience Aria envied #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Patience quotes by John Heywood
#29. Don't put the cart before the horse. #Quote by John Heywood
Patience quotes by Theophile Gautier
#30. [The critic] serves up his erudition in strong doses; he pours out all the knowledge he got up the day before in some library or other, and treats in heathenish fashion people at whose feet he ought to sit, and the most ignorant of whom could give points to much wiser men than he.
Authors bear this sort of thing with a magnanimity and a patience that are really incomprehensible. For, after all, who are those critics, who with their trenchant tone, their dicta, might be supposed sons of the gods? They are simply fellows who were at college with us, and who have turned their studies to less account, since they have not produced anything, and can do no more than soil and spoil the works of others, like true stymphalid vampires. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Patience quotes by Mary Pierce
#31. Sometimes things aren't clear right away. That's where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead. #Quote by Mary Pierce
Patience quotes by Paul Bremer
#32. I think the Iraqi people have shown extraordinary patience and courage in the last few months. They have really put a political system on the way to success, to a real democracy here. #Quote by Paul Bremer
Patience quotes by Patience Strong
#33. I thought I had finished with romantic adventures, but half-way through life and well past the age for losing one's heart, I was suddenly swept off my feet by a new love, a passionate, tyrannical, all-absorbing emotion: the love of a garden. #Quote by Patience Strong
Patience quotes by Deanna Raybourn
#34. The hardest lesson I had learnt upon my travels was patience. There are times when every muscle, every nerve, screams for movement, when every instinct urges escape. But the instinct to fly is not always a sound one. There are occasions when only stillness can save you. #Quote by Deanna Raybourn
Patience quotes by George Washington
#35. The Army, as usual, are without pay; and a great part of the soldiery without shirts; and though the patience of them is equally threadbare, the States seem perfectly indifferent to their cries. #Quote by George Washington
Patience quotes by Patience Strong
#36. Every noble achievement is a dream before it is a reality just as the oak is an acorn before it is a tree. #Quote by Patience Strong
Patience quotes by George Matheson
#37. Waiting with hope is very difficult, but true patience is expressed when we must even wait for hope. I will have reached the point of greatest strength once I have learned to wait for hope."
George Matheson #Quote by George Matheson
Patience quotes by Allan Lokos
#38. Patience lives in the gap between our experience of an event and our response to that experience. #Quote by Allan Lokos
Patience quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#39. You need to be content with small steps. That's all life is. Small steps that you take every day so when you look back down the road it all adds up and you know you covered some distance. It took me a long time to accept that, but it's true. You need to have patience."", #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Patience quotes by Stephen Fry
#40. He had quickly happened upon the truth which many lonely contemporaries would never discover, the truth that everybody, simply everybody, was panting for it and could, with patience, be shown that they were panting for it. So Adrian grabbed what was to hand and had the time of his life genitally - focusing exclusively on his own gender of course, for this was 1973 and girls had not yet been invented. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Patience quotes by George W. Bush
#41. Through centuries of struggle, Jews across the world have been witnesses not only against the crimes of men, but for faith in God, and God alone. Theirs is a story of defiance in oppression and patience in tribulation - reaching back to the exodus and their exile into the diaspora. That story continued in the founding of the State of Israel. The story continues in the defense of the State of Israel. #Quote by George W. Bush
Patience quotes by Erma Bombeck
#42. Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Patience quotes by Auliq Ice
#43. Holding on stands in the way of what's meant for you. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Patience quotes by Sally Gardner
#44. I like him to sleep close to me. Danes says it is better than leaving him alone in a cradle to get too cold or too hot. Mistress Bedwell does not agree. She says that I should have a wet nurse and not hold him all the time, for it indulges him so."
I laughed. "What nonsense!"
Hester looked pleased. "It feels right, him being next to me."
"Hester, do what you feel is best. Take no notice of Patience Bedwell. #Quote by Sally Gardner
Patience quotes by James Balog
#45. I have often thought that my work with wildlife taught me the meaning of patience, and my work with the big trees taught me the meaning of humility, and my work with the ice has taught me the meaning of mortality. #Quote by James Balog
Patience quotes by Max Lucado
#46. When we invite God into our world, he walks in. He brings a host of gifts: joy, patience, resilience. Anxieties come, but they don't stick. Fears surface and then depart. Regrets land on the windshield, but then comes the wiper of prayer. The devil still hands me stones of guilt, but I turn and give them to Christ. I'm completing my sixth decade, yet I'm wired with energy. I am happier, healthier, and more hopeful than I have ever been. Struggles come, for sure. But so does God. #Quote by Max Lucado
Patience quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#47. Patience is what is needed to see through any process of production. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Patience quotes by Samuel Johnson
#48. In all evils which admits a remedy, impatience should be avoided, because it wastes the time and attention in complaints which, if properly applied, might remove the cause. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Patience quotes by J.B. Salsbury
#49. How'd you like to hang out with me in my bus after the show?"
I drop my head back, pray for patience, and look back to find Ansel staring heatedly at my neck. "Is that code for 'do you wanna go fuck after I get off work'? Because I gotta tell you, I've heard that about a thousand times too many, and hearing it again makes me want to go Lorena Bobbitt all over the nearest penis."
Ansel's face grows impossibly paler, and he cups his junk. #Quote by J.B. Salsbury
Patience quotes by Edwin Muir
#50. Kindness and courage can repair time's faults, And serving him breeds patience and courtesy In us, light sojourners and passing subjects. #Quote by Edwin Muir

Patience quotes by Karen Salmansohn
#52. The hardest thing about "everything happens for a reason" is waiting for that reason to show up. #Quote by Karen Salmansohn
Patience quotes by Kanza Javed
#53. What happens when two introverts collide? Do they dissolve completely in each other's patience and silence, or do they break their glass shells and become new people? #Quote by Kanza Javed
Patience quotes by Andy Biersack
#54. I encourage all of you to find strength within yourself, no matter what. Be proud of who you are and never let anyone or anything take that away from you. Inner Strength is something that we are all born with. However, I've learned that it requires patience and perseverance to fully achieve it. I promise you, though, that as long as you know in your heart who you are and what you want from this world, nothing is gonna stop you. #Quote by Andy Biersack

Patience quotes by Henry Rollins
#59. For many years, I tried to make New Year's resolutions. I made lists and shot for great heights: I would show altruism and exert moral strength, patience and all those other great attributes. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Patience quotes by Gene Edward Veith Jr.
#60. Christians - who have no patience with Darwinistic materialism - often sound as progressive as the most ardent evolutionist. They look for "new" theologies, "new" ways of worship, and "new" music, being quite willing to toss out their entire "old-fashioned" Christian heritage. #Quote by Gene Edward Veith Jr.
Patience quotes by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
#61. If a man's patience is stronger than his whims and desires, then he is like an angel, but if his whims and desires are stronger than his patience, then he is like a devil. If his desire for food, drink and sex is stronger than his patience, then he is no better than an animal. #Quote by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

Patience quotes by Thomas A. Edison
#66. Fish seem to be rather conservative around this bay, one seldom catches enough to form the fundamental basis for a lie. Dante left out one of the torments of Hades - I could imagine a doomed mortal made to untangle wet fish lines forever. Everybody lost patience at the stupidity of the fish in not coming forward promptly to be murdered. #Quote by Thomas A. Edison
Patience quotes by Tulku Thondup
#67. It can be helpful to remember that the enlightened mind and the ordinary mind are two sides of the same coin. The mind is like the sea, which can be rough on the surface, with mountainous waves stirred up by ferocious wind, but calm and peaceful at the bottom. Sometimes we can catch sight of this peaceful mind even in times of trouble. These glimpses of peace show us that we may have more inner resources to draw upon than we had realized. With skill and patience, we can learn how to be in touch with our peaceful selves. #Quote by Tulku Thondup
Patience quotes by Alexis Hall
#68. The tapestry of my life was a ruin of unravelling threads. The brightest parts were a nonsensical madman's weaving. And now every day was a grey stitch, laid down with an outpatient's patience, one following the next following the next, a story in lines, like a railway track to nowhere, telling absolutely nothing. #Quote by Alexis Hall
Patience quotes by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
#69. Some are saving their right now for later, when tomorrow could be never. #Quote by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
Patience quotes by C.L.R. James
#70. The patience and forbearance of the poor are among the strongest bulwarks of the rich. #Quote by C.L.R. James
Patience quotes by Ben Hewitt
#71. Many parents aren't all that accustomed to being patient and present for their kids anymore, if only because they're simply not given the opportunity to be patient and present. Jobs get in the way. School gets in the way. After-school activities get in the way. As I have learned - as I am still learning - patience and presence are muscles that must be developed and exercised regularly. #Quote by Ben Hewitt
Patience quotes by Julie Bowen
#72. It's a war of attrition. If you have patience and a modicum of faith in yourself your chances are not too bad. #Quote by Julie Bowen
Patience quotes by Maggie Stiefvater

Patience quotes by Nikki Rowe
#77. Ive been waiting for this moment,

Patience quotes by John Calvin

Patience quotes by Deborah Blake
#80. God and Goddess, I greet you at the start of another day and ask that you send me the best day possible. Help me to feel my best so I might do my best for myself and for others. Send me the strength and energy to do the things I need to do, and the focus and creativity to do them well. Help me to let go of all those things that no longer work for my benefit so I might move in the direction of perfect health and perfect balance. Help the world move in a better direction, and watch over me and those I love. Please send me prosperity and healing, patience and wisdom, serenity and faith. ... So mote it be. #Quote by Deborah Blake
Patience quotes by Cherry Adair
#81. Her heartbeat went from fear-frantic to lust-induced, manic tom-tom in a tenth of a second. "Sebastian." A frisson ran from her temple to her toes and the tight place inside her chest unfurled as she breathed his name. "Are you real?"
In response he plunged his fingers into her wet hair. Gripping her head in a hard palm, he took her mouth in a rough, carnal kiss that left nothing to the imagination. She knew precisely what he wanted because ever since that night, she'd been wanting it, too. She responded with equal passion, snaking her hand around to the back of his neck and holding him in place as she thoroughly enjoyed her first real-world kiss in way, way too long.
His mouth left hers, and she whimpered in protest. "Come back; I wasn't done."
"Patience is a virtue." He nibbled her earlobe, making her shudder, then swirled his hot, wet tongue in her ear until she arched her neck with a thick moan. His mouth, tongue, and teeth made her forget where she was for just a little while. Made her forget where she was and what was about to transpire.
Sebastian shifted his head the few inches required to plunder her mouth again. She saw fireworks behind her closed lids as he dragged his firm mouth back and forth across hers before plunging his tongue back to duel with hers.
Dizzy with lust and longing, heart about to burst out of her chest, Michaela couldn't - forgot to - draw a breath and ripped her lips from his to drag in lifesaving oxygen. "You're t-tortu #Quote by Cherry Adair
Patience quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#82. What we need is a cup of understanding, a barrel of love, and an ocean of patience. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Patience quotes by Josephine Tey
#83. If there is anything that is likely to put me to sleep," he said, "it would be an English history book. So you can hold hands with a clear conscience." "I'm going with Nurse Burrows." "You can still hold hands." "I've no patience with you," she said patiently and faded backwards into the gloom. #Quote by Josephine Tey
Patience quotes by Sharon Weil
#84. Patience is not waiting; it is a quality of waiting. #Quote by Sharon Weil
Patience quotes by Renita Pizzitola
#85. Hey," Sean said as he stretched. "I just took Scout out."

"Thanks," Cade said.

Sean glanced back and noticed me. "Hey, Fallon." He smirked at Cade. "Well, guess I'll be heading to my room now."

Scout raised his head and his tail slapped against the couch.

"Three's a crowd, and all that." Sean ruffled the fur along Scout's neck. "Unless, of course, you're a dog." He stood and stretched again. "Oh, to be a dog in a crate."

Cade rolled his eyes at Sean's fly-on-a-wall reference. " 'Night, Sean," he grumbled.

"See you two crazy kids later." He strolled out of the room but paused and patted the kitchen wall. "Oh, and FYI, the shower in Cade's room backs to the kitchen."

God, Sean was like a male version of me. Poor Brinley, always having to put up with my crap. She was a damn good sport.

Cade just shook his head and muttered, "Jealous?"

"Fuck yeah, I am," Sean called back as he wandered down the hall. "I'm going to start calling you magic hands."

Though Sean was still fucking around, I sensed Cade losing his patience.

"It's not just his hands," I said.

Sean looked over his shoulder at me.

"I mean, call him what you want, but don't sell him short."

Sean just stared at me, surprised by either what I'd said or the fact I'd said anything at all.

I smiled in the way that always drove guys crazy, totally fake but filled with #Quote by Renita Pizzitola

#86. Master books, but do not let them master you. Read to live, not live to read. #Quote by Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton
Patience quotes by Geoff Hamilton
#87. Don't underestimate the therapeutic value of gardening. It's the one area where we can all use our nascent creative talents to make a truly satisfying work of art. Every individual, with thought, patience and a large portion of help from nature, has it in them to create their own private paradise: truly a thing of beauty and a joy for ever. #Quote by Geoff Hamilton
Patience quotes by Manning Marable
#88. Socialism lost its way largely when it became decoupled from the processes of democracy. My vision of a socially just society is one that is deeply democratic, that allows people's voices to be heard, where people actually govern. C.L.R James sometimes used the slogan "every cook can govern" to speak to the concept that there should be no hierarchies of power between those who lead and their constituencies. This idea is related to Antonio Gramsci's argument that the goal of the revolutionary party is for every member to be an intellectual. That is, everyone has the capacity, has the ability to articulate a vision of reality and to fight for the realization of their values and goals in society. Gramsci is pointing toward the development of a strategy that is deeply democratic, one where we don't have elitist, vanguardist notions of what society should look like, but have humility and the patience to listen to and learn from working class and poor people, who really are at the center of what any society is. #Quote by Manning Marable
Patience quotes by Charlotte Joko Beck
#89. If we have the patience to wait until the mud (our mind) settles and the water is clear, if we remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself, the right words will arise, without our thinking about them. #Quote by Charlotte Joko Beck
Patience quotes by Carol Morgan
#90. Like nature, like life. The storm will pass. The night will end. Spring will come. #Quote by Carol Morgan
Patience quotes by Adrienne Rich
#91. Rural Reflections
This is the grass your feet are planted on.
You paint it orange or you sing it green,
But you have never found
A way to make the grass mean what you mean.
A cloud can be whatever you intend:
Ostrich or leaning tower or staring eye.
But you have never found
A cloud sufficient to express the sky.
Get out there with your splendid expertise;
Raymond who cuts the meadow does not less.
Inhuman nature says:
Inhuman patience is the true success.
Human impatience trips you as you run;
Stand still and you must lie.
It is the grass that cuts the mower down;
It is the cloud that swallows up the sky. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Patience quotes by C.S. Lewis
#92. Our experience is coloured through and through by books and plays and the cinema, and it takes patience and skill to disentangle the things we have really learned from life for ourselves. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Patience quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#93. Almost anything difficult, any challenge takes time, patience, and hard work. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Patience quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#94. Don't cross the bridge til you come to it. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Patience quotes by Aubree Deimler
#95. But remember, nature is not quick. If you plant a seed in a ground today it will not be fully bloomed tomorrow. It takes time. It takes patience. #Quote by Aubree Deimler
Patience quotes by Malcolm X
#96. Ignorance of each other is what has made unity impossible in the past. Therefore we need enlightenment. We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity. Once we have more knowledge (light) about each other, we will stop condemning each other and a United front will be brought about. #Quote by Malcolm X
Patience quotes by William Penn
#97. Five things are requisite to a good officer - ability, clean hands, despatch, patience, and impartiality. #Quote by William Penn
Patience quotes by Friedrich Schiller
#98. Only those who have the patience to do simple things perfectly will acquire the skill to do difficult things easily. #Quote by Friedrich Schiller
Patience quotes by Mark Ruffalo
#99. My kids get very upset with me when I leave to do film work, but they have a lot of patience with me when I leave to do environmental work. #Quote by Mark Ruffalo
Patience quotes by Ann Veneman

Everyday Ambassador is a refreshing approach which encourages collaborative work with focus, empathy, humility and patience to better affect positive change in communities throughout the world. #Quote by Ann Veneman
Patience quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#101. There is no point treating a depressed person as though she were just feeling sad, saying, 'There now, hang on, you'll get over it.' Sadness is more or less like a head cold- with patience, it passes. Depression is like cancer. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Patience quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#102. There are times in life that you don't have to waste time at all, and there are times in life where delay saves time, purpose and life. In all things we do we must not forget this one thing: our lives have been timed! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Patience quotes by Thomas Boswell
#103. At its best, the US Open demands straight drives, crisp iron shots, brilliant chipping and putting, and strategic position play. Plus the patience of St. Francis and the will of Patton. At its worst, the Open eradicates the difference in ability between a Tom Purtzer and a Tom Watson and throws both in the same jail of high rough and high risk shots. This is the disturbing tendency in the Opens of the seventies and eighties, one which worries everyone in golf. #Quote by Thomas Boswell
Patience quotes by Kate Chopin
#104. Don't part from me in any ill humor. I never knew you to be out of patience with me before. #Quote by Kate Chopin
Patience quotes by Brian Selznick
#105. Maybe the play wasn't about miracles. No, maybe it was about the passage of time, and the need for patience, and the ability to forgive. Maybe Shakespeare was saying that even in a world where miracles can happen, there's still going to be pain, and loss, and regret. Because sometimes people die and you can't bring them back. That's what life is Joseph realized, miracles and sadness, side by side. #Quote by Brian Selznick
Patience quotes by Andrea Camilleri
#106. The inspector sat down on a stair, fired up a cigarette, and entered an immobility contest with a lizard. #Quote by Andrea Camilleri
Patience quotes by Rami Malek
#107. Of course I would never compare myself to someone who actually went through a war, but I definitely matured shooting 'The Pacific.' I'm more calm and I have more patience. #Quote by Rami Malek
Patience quotes by Martha Williamson
#108. As a parent, the goal is not to get to the other end. It's just simply to protect the children that you're responsible for - and protect their hearts - and, wherever they're headed, to get (them) there safely. That involves patience, time and willingness to listen. #Quote by Martha Williamson
Patience quotes by Samuel Smiles
#109. For want of self-restraint many men are engaged all their lives in fighting with difficulties of their own making, and rendering success impossible by their own cross-grained ungentleness; whilst others, it may be much less gifted, make their way and achieve success by simple patience, equanimity, and self-control. #Quote by Samuel Smiles
Patience quotes by Balroop Singh
#110. Patience is the inclination to control the racing mind, which wants to jump ahead. #Quote by Balroop Singh
Patience quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#111. I mean, if you were to find a shattered mirror, find all the pieces, all the shards and all the tiny chips, and have whatever skill and patience it took to put all that broken glass back together so that it was complete once again, the restored mirror would still be spiderwebbed with cracks, it would still be a useless glued version of its former self, which could show only fragmented reflections of anyone looking into it. Some things are beyond repair. And that was me. #Quote by Elizabeth Wurtzel
Patience quotes by Kevin M. Kruse
#112. Fifield's connection to his congregation extended to their views on religion and politics too. In the apt words of one observer, Fifield was "one of the most theologically liberal and at the same time politically conservative ministers" of his era. He had no patience for fundamentalists who insisted upon a literal reading of Scripture. "The men who chronicled and canonized the Bible were subject to human error and limitation," he believed, and therefore the text needed to be sifted and interpreted. Reading the holy book should be "like eating fish - we take the bones out to enjoy the meat. All parts are not of equal value." Accordingly, Fifield dismissed the many passages in the New Testament about wealth and poverty and instead worked tirelessly to reconcile Christianity and capitalism. In his view, both systems rested on a basic belief that individuals would succeed or fail on their own merit. #Quote by Kevin M. Kruse
Patience quotes by Thomas Frank
#113. Innovation liberalism is "a liberalism of the rich," to use the straightforward phrase of local labor leader Harris Gruman. This doctrine has no patience with the idea that everyone should share in society's wealth. What Massachusetts liberals pine for, by and large, is a more perfect meritocracy--a system where everyone gets an equal chance and the truly talented get to rise. Once that requirement is satisfied--once diversity has been achieved and the brilliant people of all races and genders have been identified and credentialed--this species of liberal can't really conceive of any further grievance against the system. The demands of ordinary working-class people, Gruman says, are unpersuasive to them: "Janitors, fast-food servers home care or child care providers--most of whom are women and people of color--they don't have college degrees."

And if you don't have a college degree in Boston--brother, you've got no one to blame but yourself. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Patience quotes by Stormie O'martian
#114. You may be asking yourself at this very moment, Why isn't Stormie's husband writing this book? The answer is simple. He's just like you. He is a busy man, with places to go, people to see, work to do, a family to support, food to eat, a life to live, golf to play, ball games to watch, channels to flip, and a chronic lack of patience when it comes to writing. It's not that he doesn't pray. #Quote by Stormie O'martian
Patience quotes by L. J. Boulding
#115. In the book of James the first chapter and the fourth verse it talks about letting patience have her perfect work in us. God knows how to make us wait to develop patience in us. Sometimes, the wait can seem unbearable. But it is in this place that He is maturing this fruit of the Spirit. #Quote by L. J. Boulding
Patience quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#116. Man doesnt have the patience or the power to wait. But God does. He has all eternity to accomplish His purposes. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Patience quotes by Brandi L. Bates
#117. David's mouth dripped open slowly. He stood with his heels dug into my carpet, a dashed hope, a broken dream. No amount of money could top the priceless look that gathered on his face like an unmade bed. His eyebrows crumpled and furrowed like disheveled sheets. His lips curled into an acidic smirk. Confusion and shock collided in the cornea of his dilated pupils. He was a B.B. King song, personified. His entire body sang the blues. #Quote by Brandi L. Bates
Patience quotes by Hannah Whitall Smith
#118. That cross inmate of your household, who has hitherto made life a burden to you, and who has been the Juggernaut car to crush your soul into the dust, may henceforth be a glorious chariot to carry you to the heights of heavenly patience and long-suffering. #Quote by Hannah Whitall Smith
Patience quotes by Nicholas Kardaras
#119. If you really want a child to thrive and blossom, lose the screens for the first few years of their lives. During those key developmental periods, let them engaging creative play. Legos are always great, as they encourage creativity and the hand-eye coordination nurtures synaptic growth. Let them explore their surroundings and allow them opportunities to experience nature. . Activities like cooking and playing music also have been shown to help young children thrive developmentally. But most importantly, let them experience boredom; there is nothing healthier for a child then to learn how to use their own interior resources to work through the challenges of being bored. This then acts as the fertile ground for developing their powers of observation, cultivating patience and developing an active imagination-- the most developmentally and neurosynaptically important skill that they can learn. #Quote by Nicholas Kardaras
Patience quotes by Carolyn Heilbrun
#120. As the years go on a sense of deep patience comes over one; one seems to know the virtue of ripeness, and the danger of rushing events. #Quote by Carolyn Heilbrun

#122. Stay open to the possibility that a relationship may evolve over time. Have Patience. #Quote by Michelle Lederman, 11 Laws Of Likability
Patience quotes by Liane Moriarty
#123. She'd learned that with her daughters. Don't say a word. Don't ask a question. Give them enough time and they'll finally tell you what's on their minds. It was like fishing. It took silence and patience. (Or so she'd heard. Cecilia would rather hammer nails into her forehead than go fishing.) Silence didn't come naturally to her. Cecilia was a talker. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Patience quotes by Laura Thalassa
#124. How he has patience for foreplay right now is beyond me. Then again, I was always the kid who peeked at my Christmas presents before they were wrapped, so … maybe when it comes to fun shit, I'm just overzealous. #Quote by Laura Thalassa

Patience quotes by Mario Andretti
#127. Al Unser Sr. was one of the smartest drivers I've ever raced against. And I often said, I wish I could've had some of his patience. I know it would have worked for me many times. #Quote by Mario Andretti
Patience quotes by Anne Bishop
#128. Let me see if I understand this," Jaenelle said.
[...]
"You and Falonar have decided to go your own ways," Jaenelle said with a patience that made Surreal wary.
She shrugged. "It was a mutual decision." The bastard.
"Uh-huh. So you packed your bags..."
"It was his eyrie," Surreal cut in. "I certainly didn't want to live there." And I didn't want to watch him courting Nurian in ways he never thought to court me.
"...and left Ebon Rih without telling Lucivar."
"Who would have strung Falonar up by the heels"... or by the balls, which might have been interesting to watch... "before having a little chat."
"No," Jaenelle said, "he would have waited for Chaosti to show up, and then he would have strung Falonar up by the heels." She paused. "Maybe by the heels."
Which just confirmed why Surreal had slipped away from Ebon Rih before Lucivar had time to notice. As the Warlord Prince of Ebon Rih dealing with a Warlord Prince who was his second-in-command, Lucivar would have been nasty and explosive. Chaosti, the Warlord Prince of the Dea al Mon and a kinsman on her mother's side, would have approached Falonar with the protective viciousness that made Warlord Princes such a deadly facet of Blood society.
Dealing with the male relatives she'd acquired since coming to Kaeleer was so much fun.
"And you entered the Hall through one of the side doors to avoid seeing Daemon, who's working in his study and would have met you before you got #Quote by Anne Bishop
Patience quotes by Nora Roberts
#129. It was a lie, of course, and she was prepared to confess it to her priest. But she'd be damned if she'd tell him she'd been playing with his music.
Her pride was worth the penance.
He felt a quiver in his heart that he took for sympathy. "There, Brenna darling. Have you gone and fallen in love on me?"
She jerked, whirled, gaped at him. He was watching her with such - such bloody affection, such patience and sympathy. She could have beaten him black and blue. Instead, she just shoved clear of him and snatched up her toolbox. "Shawn Gallagher, you are truly a great idiot of a man."
With her nose in the air and her tools clanking, she stalked out.
He only shook his head, then went back to his cleaning up. With that little quiver around his heart again, he wondered who it was that O'Toole had set her sights on.
Whoever, Shawn thought, slamming a cupboard door just a little too forcefully, the man had better be worthy of her. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Patience quotes by Eric Weiner
#130. Another thing that Denis likes about Thailand is the concept of jai yen, cool heart. The worst thing one can do in Thailand is to lose one's jai yen. This is why Thais have no patience for uppity foreigners, which is pretty much all foreigners. #Quote by Eric Weiner
Patience quotes by Patience Strong
#131. Gardening is something more than a pastime; it is a religion. #Quote by Patience Strong
Patience quotes by Curtis Tyrone Jones
#132. Focusing on the distance brings resistance but these steps of brevity feel heavenly & somehow still lead to a life of longevity. #Quote by Curtis Tyrone Jones
Patience quotes by Lodro Rinzler
#133. Patience from a Buddhist perspective is not a "wait and see" attitude, but rather one of "just be there" ... Patience can also be based on not expecting anything.Think of patience as an act of being open to whatever comes your way. When you begin to solidify expectations, you get frustrated because they are not met in the way you had hoped ... With no set idea of how something is supposed to be, it is hard to get stuck on things not happening in the time frame you desired. Instead, you are just being there, open to the possibilities of your life. #Quote by Lodro Rinzler
Patience quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#134. Impatience has ruined many crowns; it had lured people to give up when they have just few minute to win, just few millimeters to touch the winning carpet! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Patience quotes by Francois Fenelon
#135. We must truly serve those whom we appear to command; we must bear with their imperfections, correct them with gentleness and patience, and lead them in the way to heaven. #Quote by Francois Fenelon
Patience quotes by Richard Bausch
#136. I don't teach writing. I teach patience. Toughness. Stubbornness. The willingness to fail. I teach the life. The odd thing is most of the things that stop an inexperienced writer are so far from the truth as to be nearly beside the point. When you feel glosbal doubt about your talent, that is your talent. People who have no talent don't have any doubt. #Quote by Richard Bausch
Patience quotes by Curtis Tyrone Jones
#137. Life can't be rushed. It takes time to develop the wrinkles of wisdom. #Quote by Curtis Tyrone Jones
Patience quotes by Paulo Coelho
#138. Once, someone told me that the music had been created by God and that rapid movement was necessary for people to get in touch with themselves. For years, i felt that this was true, and now I 'm being forced to do the most difficult thing in the world - slow down. Why is patience so important?"
"Because it makes us pay attention."
"Isn't the soul more important?"
"of course it is, but if your soul could communicate with your brain, you would be able to change even more things #Quote by Paulo Coelho

#140. It's the not-yet in the now, the taste of the fruit that does not-yet exist, hanging the blossom on the bough. #Quote by Laurens Van Der Post
Patience quotes by Clement Of Alexandria
#141. He, in truth, bears witness to himself that he is faithful and loyal towards God; and to the tempter, that he in vain envied him who is faithful through love; and to the Lord, of the inspired persuasion in reference to His doctrine, from which he will not depart through fear of death; further, he confirms also the truth of preaching by his deed, showing that God to whom he hastes is powerful. You will wonder at his love, which he conspicuously shows with thankfulness, in being united to what is allied to him, and besides by his precious blood, shaming the unbelievers. He then avoids denying Christ through fear by reason of the command; nor does he sell his faith in the hope of the gifts prepared, but in love to the Lord he will most gladly depart from this life; perhaps giving thanks both to him who afforded the cause of his departure hence, and to him who laid the plot against him, for receiving an honourable reason which he himself furnished not, for showing what he is, to him by his patience, and to the Lord in love, by which even before his birth he was manifested to the Lord, who knew the martyr's choice. With good courage, then, he goes to the Lord, his friend, for whom he voluntarily gave his body, and, as his judges hoped, his soul, hearing from our Saviour the words of poetry, "Dear brother," by reason of the similarity of his life. We call martyrdom perfection, not because the man comes to the end of his life as others, but because he has exhibited the perfect work #Quote by Clement Of Alexandria

Patience quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
#144. I do not fear to die, that pang is past. God raises my weakness, and gives me courage to endure the worst. I leave a sad and bitter world; and if you remember me, and think of me as of one unjustly condemned, I am resigned to the fate awaiting me. Learn from me, dear lady, to submit in patience to the will of Heaven!"~~Justine Moritz #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Patience quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#145. May you find in yourself enough patience to endure and enough simplicity to have faith ... #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Patience quotes by E. Jamie
#146. I'm insatiable? I am?" Alessandro asked cocking an eyebrow as he ran his warm hands along the satin material covering her body. "Alessandro. You're alive. I can touch you, look into your eyes and hear your arrogant English voice. We're gonna spend the rest of our lives together, that's plenty romantic for me." Bree pressed her mouth against him. He tasted of coffee and peppermint. He nibbled slightly on her lower lip before pulling away. "Darling, that sounds lovely, but my wedding night fantasy was more along the lines of fucking you into the mattress." Bree smacked his shoulder. "Patience, Dardano. Tonight we take things slow, the mattress fucking will come in time. Now, get on your back and let me put my hands on you and assure myself that you're real." Alessandro sighed but did as she ordered. "Now if you feel anything-" "I certainly hope so or we have a very big problem," Alessandro joked. She smacked his chest. "If you feel any pain you let me know and we'll stop." "Says the woman who's smacked me twice in the past five minutes," Alessandro said, but his eyes were shining with amusement. #Quote by E. Jamie
Patience quotes by Jeremiah Vallery
#147. For Seekers of Faith (By St. Benedict) GRACIOUS and holy Father, give us the wisdom to discover you, the intelligence to understand you, the diligence to seek after you, the patience to wait for you, eyes to behold you, a heart to meditate upon you, and a life to proclaim you, through the power of the spirit of Jesus, our Lord. Amen. #Quote by Jeremiah Vallery

Patience quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#150. As a woman, a true loyal friendship is important. Truth be told, it takes patience and a lot of work. You will have some friendships that will be underestimated and tested. Most definitely, there will be some friendships that will come and go. However, there will be friendships and sisterhoods that will last a lifetime. A true sister will walk through the fire with you; and after she walks through the fire, she will stand against the rough currents with you. Nobody is perfect. True sisterhood is a gift that absolutely holds your love together. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Patience quotes by Francis Quarles
#151. Hath any wounded thee with injuries? Meet them with patience. Hasty words rankle the wound; soft language dresses it. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Patience quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#152. If you seek patience, you will find no better example than the cross. Great patience occurs in two ways: either when one patiently suffers much, or when one suffers things which one is able to avoid and yet does not avoid. Christ endured much on the cross, and did so patiently, because when he suffered he did not threaten; he was led like a sheep to the slaughter and he did not open his mouth. #Quote by Thomas Aquinas
Patience quotes by Cathleen Falsani
#153. Grace to me is a little bit of extra help when you're feeling stuck or doomed or, probably, hopefully, out of good ideas on how to save yourself, and how to salvage the situation or the friendship or the whatever it is," Anne Lamott once told me. "I wish it was accompanied by harp music so you could know that's what was happening, but for me it's that extra pause or that extra breath or that extra minute's patience against all odds." On that first trip to Ireland, grace - the kick-in-the-pants, clarifying, cosmic-pause-button kind of grace - didn't just have a harp. It had an entire soundtrack ... #Quote by Cathleen Falsani
Patience quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#154. To be honest, I'd be the last person who should be doling out gardeinng advice. I don't have the patience for growing things. Yes, I realize there's nothing quite as satisfying as eating food that you've pulled up from the ground and that's why, at the height of the planting season, I bury cans of tomato soup in my backyard and dig them up in late spring. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Patience quotes by Robert Herjavec
#155. Business is a sprint until you find an opportunity, then it's the patience of a marathon runner. #Quote by Robert Herjavec
Patience quotes by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
#156. She shivered as his mouth left hers and traced a molten path over her cheek, her brow, and then paused to press gently against the fragile eyelids, which flickered downward and waited for his touch. He nuzzled aside the sweet-scented tresses and, finding her ear, touched it lightly with his tongue. A throbbing pressure grew in the man's loins. He had played out his hand with patience, but now it was waning before the tumult of his passions. His concern for her timidity dwindled apace with his growing need, and his hand came up to cup the fullness of her breast. A shocked gasp caught in Erienne's throat, and she came upright, pushing at his chest with both hands and striking away the brand that seared her. She held him at arm's length and confronted him in a breathless whisper, "You press yourself beyond the bounds of propriety, sir! You gave your word!"
"Aye, madam, that I did," he whispered back. "But listen well, my love, and mark the bounds." He leaned closer.
"Sweet Erienne, the ball is over."
His arm cradled her head as she stared at him aghast, and then his lips smothered hers.

-Erienne & Christopher #Quote by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
Patience quotes by Joe Mehl
#157. Never think tolerance and patience as a sign of fear or weakness. This is true sign of a person with strength, attitude of discipline and self-control. Wins every time. #Quote by Joe Mehl

Patience quotes by Elder Paisios Of Mount Athos

Patience quotes by Chelsea Handler
#160. It's true what they say about patience being a virtue; it just happens to be a virtue that I choose not to pursue. #Quote by Chelsea Handler
Patience quotes by Zadie Smith
#161. By Allah, how _thankful_ he is (_yes, madam, one moment, madam_), how _gladdened_ by the thought that Magid, Magid at least, will, in a matter of four hours, be flying east from this place and its demands, its constant cravings, this place where there exists neither patience nor pity, where the people want what they want _now_, right now (_We've been waiting twenty minutes for the vegetables_), expecting their lovers, their children, their friends, and even their gods to arrive at little cost and in little time, just as table ten expect their tandoori prawns ... #Quote by Zadie Smith
Patience quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#162. Trust in Creation which is made fresh daily and doesn't suffer in translation. This God does not work in especially mysterious ways. The sun here rises and sets at six exactly. A caterpillar becomes a butterfly. A bird raises its brood in the forest and a greenheart tree will only grow from a greenheart seed. He brings drought sometimes followed by torrential rains and if these things aren't always what I had in mind, they aren't my punishment either. They're rewards, let's say for the patience of a seed. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Patience quotes by Robert Jordan
#163. Anyone who claimed that old age had brought them patience was either lying or senile. #Quote by Robert Jordan

Patience quotes by Helen Macdonald
#165. I must not look the hawk in the eye. I must not punish the hawk, though it bates, and beats, and my hand is raw with pecks and my face stings from the blows of its bating wings. Hawks cannot be punished. They would die rather than submit. Patience is my only weapon. Patience. Derived from patior. Meaning to suffer. It is an ordeal. I shall triumph. #Quote by Helen Macdonald
Patience quotes by William Carlos Williams
#166. Dear Mama: The reason I didn't write last Sunday was because I was out of town. My friend Pound invited me to spend Saturday and Sunday with him … His parents are very nice people and have always been exceptionally kind to me. Mrs. Pound had prepared a fine meal … After supper Pound and I went to his room where we had a long talk on subjects that I love yet have not time to study and which he is making a life work of. That is literature, and the drama and the classics, also a little philosophy. He, Pound, is a fine fellow; he is the essence of optimism and has a cast-iron faith that is something to admire. If he ever does get blue nobody knows it, so he is just the man for me. But not one person in a thousand likes him, and a great many people detest him and why? Because he is so darned full of conceits and affectation. He is really a brilliant talker and thinker but delights in making himself just exactly what he is not: a laughing boor. His friends must be all patience in order to find him out and even then you must not let him know it, for he will immediately put on some artificial mood and be really unbearable. It is too bad, for he loves to be liked, yet there is some quality in him which makes him too proud to try to please people. I am sure his only fault is an exaggeration of a trait that in itself is good and in every way admirable. He is afraid of being taken in if he trusts his really tender heart to mercies of a cruel crowd and so keeps it hidden and trusts no one #Quote by William Carlos Williams
Patience quotes by Booker T. Washington
#167. I have begun everything with the idea that I could succeed, and I never had much patience with the multitudes of people who are always ready to explain why one cannot succeed. #Quote by Booker T. Washington
Patience quotes by Joseph Priestley
#168. In all controversies, it is better to wait the decisions of time, which are slow and sure, than to take those of synods, which are often hasty and injudicious #Quote by Joseph Priestley
Patience quotes by Simone Elkeles
#169. He has no clue that I have the patience of a saint. At least that's what Carlos says, although that isn't saying much, considering his fuse is about as short as an eyelash. #Quote by Simone Elkeles
Patience quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
#170. But to give him anything to drink was impossible, or would have been so had not the landlord bored a reed, and putting one end in his mouth poured the wine into him through the other; all which he bore with patience rather than sever the ribbons of his helmet. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
Patience quotes by Miles Franklin
#171. There is any amount of love and good in the world, but you must search for it. Being misunderstood is one of the trials we all must bear. I think that even the most common-minded person in the land has inner thoughts and feelings which no one can share with him, and the higher one's organization the more one must suffer in that respect. #Quote by Miles Franklin
Patience quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#172. Shame on you, Crispin. Married how long, and you haven't spanked your wife with a metal spatula yet?"
I'd gotten used to Ian's assumption that everyone was as perverted as he was, so I didn't miss a beat.
"We prefer blender beaters for our kitchen utensil kink," I said with a straight face.
Bones hid his smile behind his hand, but Ian looked intrigued.
"I haven't tried that ... oh, you're lying, aren't you?"
"Ya think?" I asked with a snort.
Ian gave a sigh of exaggerated patience and glanced at Bones.
"Being related to her through you is a real trial. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost

#173. Extraordinary power exists in a trial of patience. Few endure their trials well enough to discover this. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich

Patience quotes by Max Porter
#175. Which do you think is more patient, an idea or a hope? #Quote by Max Porter
Patience quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#176. To understand oneself requires, not impetuous urges, conclusions, but great patience. One must go slowly, millimeter by millimeter, never missing a step - which doesn't mean that you must everlastingly keep awake. You can't. It does imply that you must watch and drop what you have watched, let it go and pick it up again, so that the mind does not become a mere accumulation of what it has learned but is capable of watching each thing anew. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Patience quotes by Deyth Banger
#177. Hey, hey wait... wait... try again.... It works does it?? (What?? YOu are asking a question did you?? I'm talking about the problem which you had and something didn't work as well as far as I can see... So I will wait... wait... try now!) #Quote by Deyth Banger

Patience quotes by Heather Choate Davis

Patience quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#181. 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. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Patience quotes by James 1 24
#182. My brothers and sisters, you will have many kinds of trouble. But this gives you a reason to be very happy. You know that when your faith is tested, you learn to be patient in suffering. If you let that patience work in you, the end result will be good. You will be mature and complete. You will be all that God wants you to be. #Quote by James 1 24

Patience quotes by Thomas Of Villanova

Patience quotes by Lisa Unger
#192. We have more patience for girls who act like boys than boys who act like girls. A tomboy is considered cute. One day she'll shuck her muddy jeans and put on a dress, and everyone will gasp at her beauty. They'll all laugh about her tree-climbing, frog-catching days.
But there's no such tolerance for the boy who puts on a dress, who wants a toy kitchen or a baby doll to love. Jung would say that this is because, even culturally, our anima is repressed, hated, derided. We hate our female selves. A boyish girl is perfectly acceptable. A girlish boy? Not so much. In certain places, you'd get your ass kicked, find yourself "gay-bashed." You might even get yourself killed. That's how much we hate our anima. #Quote by Lisa Unger
Patience quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#193. In my judgment, the Deists were all successfully answered. The god of nature is certainly as bad as the God of the Old Testament. It is only when we discard the idea of a deity, the idea of cruelty or goodness in nature, that we are able ever to bear with patience the ills of life. I feel that I am neither a favorite nor a victim. Nature neither loves nor hates me. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Patience quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#194. The majority of us cannot see beyond a few years, just as some animals cannot see beyond a few steps. Just a little narrow circle - that is our world. We have not the patience to look beyond, and thus become immoral and wicked. This is our weakness, our powerlessness. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Patience quotes by Eiji Yoshikawa
#195. Here
you warriors
why this moaning and complaining? Have you no more sense than toads and vipers? Our time hasn't come. Have you no patience? Are we not the 'trodden weed' still? The time is not yet here for us to raise our heads. Must you still complain? #Quote by Eiji Yoshikawa
Patience quotes by Scott Lynch
#196. Surely you realize," said Patience, "that cats are no great respecters of human opinion. #Quote by Scott Lynch
Patience quotes by M.R. Carey
#197. Entirely out of patience, Dr Caldwell reaches out her hand to pick up the scalpel again. But right then, something happens that makes her stop. Two things, really. The first is an explosion, loud enough to make the windows rattle in their frames. The second is an ear-splitting scream, like a hundred people shrieking all at the same time. Dr Selkirk's face looks first blank, then terrified. "That's general evacuation," she says. "Isn't it? Isn't that the evacuation siren?" Dr Caldwell doesn't waste time answering her. She crosses to the window and hauls up the blinds. Melanie #Quote by M.R. Carey
Patience quotes by Elise Kova
#198. Then it shall be a fruit that will ripen with time and patience. #Quote by Elise Kova
Patience quotes by J. Paul Getty
#199. Patience; this is the greatest business asset. Wait for the right time to make your moves. #Quote by J. Paul Getty
Patience quotes by A. Philip Randolph
#200. Those who deplore our militants, who exhort patience in the name of a false peace, are in fact supporting segregation and exploitation. They would have social peace at the expense of social and racial justice. They are more concerned with easing racial tension than enforcing racial democracy. #Quote by A. Philip Randolph
