Patience lightens the burthen we cannot avert
There is no road too long to the man who advances deliberately and without undue haste; there are no honors too distant to the man who prepares himself for them with patience
Who ever is out of patience is out of possession of their soul
Patience and fortitude conquer all things
To every obstacle oppose patience, perseverance and soothing language.
All things come round to him who will but wait.
