There are times when patience is easy to find. Other times you haven’t the patience to be patient. Like right now. I want what I want right now. I got up early for it. I lost sleep for it. And it isn’t here yet. Hurry, hurry, hurry.

  1. What if all we have is patience? I fear this notion and that I may never find anything beyond. If I am patient, am I really allowing myself to feel? Perhaps patience is another level of feeling numb.

  2. Patience and perseverance. They go hand in hand. Believe me , they do overcome mountains. There is a saying in sanskrit , the rough translation of which goes, ” in time does everything happen. The gardener may pour hundreds of pitchers of water,but the fruit is borne only in the season it is meant to.”Recently i came across these words in a kids animation movie,”all the good things to those who wait.” Patience is indeed a virtue. As you grow older, when you become parents yourself, when you a take up a job, all the life’s experiences teach you patience.

  3. Patience—one of the virtues that Ian seemed to have progressively lost as he got older. On his occasional forays to run errands, he constantly encountered blatant lack of manners and consideration by people in general. He often wondered, “What is this world coming to?” With the advent of technology, he would hear more often how people would be using their cellular devices for filming people in trouble instead of trying to help them. Stupidity trumps common sense in this case. He definitely had no patience for that.

  4. Patience is a quality needed by everyone. It is attributed to success sometimes, and at times it is criticized at the highest level. The patience of a man speaks of his character in a huge way and highlights endurance. Those with patience have the ability to overcome obstacles and succeed.
