Don’t make a permanent decision for your temporary emotion.

Stop beating yourself up.  You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.

Patience is not passive; on the contrary, it is active; it is concentrated strength.

It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.

Change is not a process for the impatient.

Patience is passion tamed.

There is more to life than increasing its speed.

We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape one hundred days of sorrow.

If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.

Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.

Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you.

Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day.

Being right is highly overrated. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.
