Patience is the companion of wisdom. *Saint Augustine Patience is not simply the ability to wait - it's how we behave while we're waiting. *Joyce Meyer 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 Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy. *Saadi Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. *Carl  Jung (I do not necessarily share the beliefs of all the people cited, but these are good quotes nonetheless.)
