“Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is “timing.”
It waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.”

Fulton J. Sheen

“A waiting person is a patient person.

The word patience means the willingness

to stay where we are

and live the situation out  to the full

in the belief that something hidden there

will manifest itself to us.”

I understand the meaning of patience.

Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.”

  1. Patience is something I’m still trying to learn. I sometimes wonder if it isn’t supposed to be my life-lesson. Wonderful quotes, WG, and beautiful images. I love the tree in the last image. I imagine it’s been around long enough to have an abundance of patience. 🙂

  2. Great quotes shared by someone who thoroughly understands the value of patience…a teacher. This is a lovely post ❤

  3. Great and timely quotes, E. I adore the photo with the leaves in the Dusty Miller!
