Chapter 5, Page 31, Book 17



With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts

Eleanor Roosevelt

All good things take time

Patience is the best remedy for every trouble. 

 Plautus

 The basic definition of patience is, waiting without complaint.  Patience means not getting put out when things do not turn out just as we wish.

Patience stifles anger, and sweetens the temper, and subdues pride. Patience bridles the tongue, so that it shall not speak in anger, and holds back the hand from striking in wrath. Patience makes us humble in prosperity, and cheerful in adversity. Patience comforts the poor, and restrains the rich.

Some people never really master the art of being patient, and at times, all of us struggle with being patient.



Patience is the ability to count down before you blast off.

We all want good things to happen in our lives, but too often we want it now, not later.  We spend a lot of time in our lives waiting because change is a process. Many people want change, but they don't want to go through the waiting process.  But we can't have patience without the waiting. But just because we're waiting doesn't necessarily mean we have patience. It's how we wait that counts.

There have been many times that I’ve prayed for patience and then have been made to wait.  The value in the lesson is that good things do come to those who wait.  


Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.

John Quincy Adams

It is hard to be patient, especially when waiting for something, but it does help us to build up endurance while we do so.

Patience, the word could fill thousands of books and probably does. An attribute used at times by all of us, and most of us wish it was part of our nature 'ALL THE TIME'. In all honesty my mama was a patient person. I NEVER saw her 'over-wrought'. The most concerned I can remember was during WWII while one of my brothers was in the Pacific. I can be patient, but it is tough especially when the family is concerned. LOL

Boy, this should be pasted at every airport's boarding area.
... Jus' saying after recently witnessing more than a few behaviors 'unbecoming' so-called adults.

Patience is not my strong suit, but I usually cope by doing something that used to get me in trouble in grade school -- daydreaming.
