Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it. Let me not look for allies in life’s battlefield but to my own strength. Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom. Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone; But let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure.
Rabindranath Tagore quotes
Endurance is patience concentrated.
Thomas Carlyle quotes
Nature, time, and patience are the three great physicians.
The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.
Fortune knocks but once, but misfortune has much more patience.
Genius is only a greater aptitude for patience.
Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.
Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is often harder than to work.
Peter Marshall quotes
Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you, but not in one ahead.
Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.
