Patient Quotations

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Robert H. Schuller

I believe that a trusting attitude and a patient attitude go hand in hand. You see, when you let go and learn to trust God, it releases joy in your life. And when you trust God, you're able to be more patient. Patience is not just about waiting for something... it's about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting.
Joyce Meyer

Be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious.
Phillips Brooks

Sometimes things aren't clear right away. That's where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead.
Mary Pierce
