How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes,
frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young?
~Paul Sweeney

Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you and scorn in the one ahead.
~Mac McCleary

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew.
- Saint Francis de Sales

If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation.
- Jiddu Krishnamurti

Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.
- Barack Obama

The secret of patience is to do something else in the meantime.
