All that I really have to recount are observations and notes made during the course of my life as a painter. I ask those who will have the patience to read these notes the indulgence usually granted to the writings of painters
Henri Matisse quotes
Seek assistance through patience and prayer, and most surely it is a hard thing except for the humble ones. (The Cow 2.45)
Patience will achieve more than force.
Edmund Burke quotes
Endurance is nobler than strength and patience than beauty.
John Ruskin quotes
But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it (Romans 8:25).
The Bible quotes
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 take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
Carl Jung quotes
Experience, like a pale musician, holds a dulcimer of patience in his hand.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning quotes
O you who believe! seek assistance through patience and prayer; surely Allah is with the patient. (The Cow 2.153 )
It would be difficult for me to express all my thoughts about it. It remains a constant disappointment to me that my drawings are not yet what I want them to be. The difficulties are indeed numerous and great, and cannot be overcome immediately. Making progress is like miners' work: it doesn't advance as quickly as one should like, and also as others expect; but faced with such a task, patience and faithfulness are essential. In fact, I don't think much about the difficulties, because if one thought of them too much, one would get dazed or confused.
Vincent Van Gogh quotes
Patience and diligence, like faith, remove mountains.
William Penn quotes
