Great Patience quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#3. God is passionate about good happening in this world, not evil. I'm convinced of that. God hates what happened here, Rae, the same way He hates divorce, and He hates injustice. But He won't destroy people to proactively prevent them from doing evil things, nor will He destroy them today after they have done evil things. Not until His great patience has extended to them every chance and opportunity there is to change and become good again. - Author: Dee Henderson
Great Patience quotes by Dee Henderson

Some of the greatest works of art and the most important works of peace were created by people who had no need for the limelight. They knew that what they were doing was their call, and they did it with great patience, perseverance, and love. - Author: Henri Nouwen
Great Patience quotes by Henri Nouwen

Great Patience quotes by Emile Zola
#8. Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind. - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
Great Patience quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#9. MY BETH.

Sitting patient in the shadow
Till the blessed light shall come,
A serene and saintly presence
Sanctifies our troubled home.
Earthly joys and hopes and sorrows
Break like ripples on the strand
Of the deep and solemn river
Where her willing feet now stand.

O my sister, passing from me,
Out of human care and strife,
Leave me, as a gift, those virtues
Which have beautified your life.
Dear, bequeath me that great patience
Which has power to sustain
A cheerful, uncomplaining spirit
In its prison-house of pain.

Give me, for I need it sorely,
Of that courage, wise and sweet,
Which has made the path of duty
Green beneath your willing feet.
Give me that unselfish nature,
That with charity divine
Can pardon wrong for love's dear sake -
Meek heart, forgive me mine!

Thus our parting daily loseth
Something of its bitter pain,
And while learning this hard lesson,
My great loss becomes my gain.
For the touch of grief will render
My wild nature more serene,
Give to life new aspirations,
A new trust in the unseen.

Henceforth, safe across the river,
I shall see for evermore
A beloved, household spirit
Waiting for me on the shore.
Hope and faith, born of my sorrow,
Guardian angels shall become,
And the sister gone before me
By their hands shall lead me home. - Author: Louisa May Alcott
Great Patience quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#10. To understand oneself requires, not impetuous urges, conclusions, but great patience. One must go slowly, millimeter by millimeter, never missing a step - which doesn't mean that you must everlastingly keep awake. You can't. It does imply that you must watch and drop what you have watched, let it go and pick it up again, so that the mind does not become a mere accumulation of what it has learned but is capable of watching each thing anew. - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Great Patience quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#11. No matter how great the talent or efforts, some things just take time. You can't produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant. - Author: Warren Buffett
Great Patience quotes by Warren Buffett
#12. I have an equal amount of patience as my grade-school children, which is not great. - Author: Mike D
Great Patience quotes by Mike D
#13. The truth is that exploration and enlargement make the world smaller. The telegraph and the steamboat make the world smaller. The telescope makes the world smaller; it is only the microscope that makes it larger. Before long the world will be cloven with a war between the telescopists and the microscopists. The first study large things and live in a small world; the second study small things and live in a large world. It is inspiriting without doubt to whizz in a motor-car round the earth, to feel Arabia as a whirl of sand or China as a flash of rice-fields. But Arabia is not a whirl of sand and China is not a flash of rice-fields. They are ancient civilizations with strange virtues buried like treasures. If we wish to understand them it must not be as tourists or inquirers, it must be with the loyalty of children and the great patience of poets. To conquer these places is to lose them. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Great Patience quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#14. For the sake of a few lines one must see many cities, men and things. One must know the animals, one must feel how the birds fly and know the gesture with which the small flowers open in the morning. One must be able to think back to roads in unknown regions, to unexpected meetings and to partings which one had long seen coming; to days of childhood that are still unexplained, to parents that one had to hurt when they brought one some joy and one did not grasp it (it was joy for someone else); to childhood illness that so strangely began with a number of profound and grave transformations, to days in rooms withdrawn and quiet and to mornings by the sea, to the sea itself, to seas, to nights of travel that rushed along on high and flew with all the stars-and it is not enough if one may think all of this. One must have memories of many nights of love, none of which was like the others, of the screams of women in labor, and of light, white, sleeping women in childbed, closing again. But one must also have been beside the dying, one must have sat beside the dead in the room with the open window and the fitful noises. And still it is not enough to have memories. One must be able to forget them when they are many, and one must have the great patience to wait until they come again. For it is not yet the memories themselves. Not until they have turned to blood within us, to glance, to gesture, nameless and no longer to be distinguished from ourselves-not until then can it happen that - Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
Great Patience quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#15. Great patience is called for on the hard path that I have entered on. - Author: Edgar Degas
Great Patience quotes by Edgar Degas
#16. [J]udges, therefore, should be always men of learning and experience in the laws, of exemplary morals, great patience, calmness, coolness, and attention. Their minds should not be distracted with jarring interests; they should not be dependent upon any man, or body of men. - Author: John Adams
Great Patience quotes by John Adams
#17. Dear parents, have great patience, and forgive from the depths of your heart. - Author: Pope Francis
Great Patience quotes by Pope Francis
#18. Patience and fortitude conquer all things. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Great Patience quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#19. Being the firstborn gives you great patience. But you reach a point where after trying and trying you say, Patience be damned. Let them suffer their distorted worldview. Your job is to preserve yourself, not to descend into their hole. It's a relief when you arrive at this place, the point of absurdity, because then you are free, you know you owe them nothing. - Author: Abraham Verghese
Great Patience quotes by Abraham Verghese
#20. To be successful, you must decide exactly what you want to accomplish, then resolve to pay the price to get it. - Author: Nelson Bunker Hunt
Great Patience quotes by Nelson Bunker Hunt

Great Patience quotes by Jennifer Harlow

#23. I come from the school who thought the Internet could be the great democratising force, that getting rid of the gatekeepers was a positive move. - Author: Beeban Kidron
Great Patience quotes by Beeban Kidron
#24. We think of time as something wound on a great spool in heaven and that it rolls off for men faster then it does for women. Time is not like that: time is the medium in which things change. It is not time that makes a baby grow - it is change that does it. In order for change to occur, there must be a sequence of change. We call that sequence time. (page 45) - Author: A.W. Tozer
Great Patience quotes by A.W. Tozer
#25. A great benefit of Sabbath keeping is that we learn to let God take care of us - not by becoming passive and lazy, but in the freedom of giving up our feeble attempts to be God in our own lives. - Author: Marva J. Dawn
Great Patience quotes by Marva J. Dawn
#26. Not a day goes by that I don't click on RealClearPolitics at least once, the presidential poll charts, graphs and moving averages are great. If RCP didn't already exist, somebody would have to invent it. - Author: Charlie Cook
Great Patience quotes by Charlie Cook
#27. He led them around the base of a great fallen tree whose exposed roots resembled more than anything else a huge broom - a broom that would have fired the imagination of Rachel the Dragon toward heroic, legendary feats of sweeping. - Author: Tad Williams
Great Patience quotes by Tad Williams
#28. If you don't like an ad, why should anybody else? ... We're all consumers ... That's why I always create commercials for myself first of all. I am the consumer I know best. If I think it's a great commercial, I figure the rest of the people might think so, too. I haven't been wrong so far. - Author: Stan Freberg
Great Patience quotes by Stan Freberg
#29. Knowledge is great; wisdom is even better. - Author: Jay Allison
Great Patience quotes by Jay Allison
#30. I have to say that in 1981, making those decisions, I felt like I was providing enough freedom for 10 years. That is, a move from 64k to 640k felt like something that would last a great deal of time. Well, it didn't. It took about only 6 years before people started to see that as a real problem. - Author: Bill Gates
Great Patience quotes by Bill Gates
#31. It really is no different in the way that we make records and shoot music videos. I don't think of the movie as being a great leap out of my current profession. - Author: Wayne Coyne
Great Patience quotes by Wayne Coyne

We learned a great deal doing it and we believe the readers will too. - Author: Alex Kendrick
Great Patience quotes by Alex Kendrick
#33. I was never told to "Get up, get out there, get a job." It was never a thing either parent ever said I had to do. It was what I wanted to do. I think I was very interested in being away from them as much as possible. Employment was great for that. - Author: Henry Rollins
Great Patience quotes by Henry Rollins

Great Patience quotes by Phil McGraw
#35. Markets are designed to allow individuals to look after their private needs and to pursue profit. It's really a great invention and I wouldn't under-estimate the value of that, but they're not designed to take care of social needs. - Author: George Soros

Great Patience quotes by Peter Straub
#39. I've always been keenly aware of the passing of time. I've always thought that I was old. Even when I was twelve, I thought it was awful to be thirty. I felt that something was lost. At the same time, I was aware of what I could gain, and certain periods of my life have taught me a great deal. But, in spite of everything, I've always been haunted by the passing of time and by the fact that death keeps closing in on us. - Author: Simone De Beauvoir
Great Patience quotes by Simone De Beauvoir

Great Patience quotes by Jeff Bezos
#41. I always love to put hidden messages in my music videos, because I know there are people like me who, when they watch something, are really active, involved participants.

Great Patience quotes by Jared Leto

#47. He'd never seen it in person before (the main quarry); it was larger than he'd expected. When he'd first taken an interest, some decades before, following hints of something ancient and significant buried there, he could still make out remnants of the hill that had loaned the town it's name. Now that was gone - not just erased but inverted, to become a great pit. He found tho notable for the demonstration of force it represented. Civilizations rose and fell; what caused them to be remembered was not their contribution to knowledge or culture, not even the size of their empires, but rather how much force they extorted upon the landscape. This was what survived them. - Author: Max Barry
Great Patience quotes by Max Barry

Great Patience quotes by Doris Lessing
#49. The man who in times of popular excitement boldly and unflinchingly resists hot-tempered clamor for an unnecessary war, and thus exposes himself to the opprobrious imputation of a lack of patriotism or of courage, to the end of saving his country from a great calamity, is, as to 'loving and faithfully serving his country,' at least as good a patriot as the hero of the most daring feat of arms," Schurz - Author: Stephen Kinzer
Great Patience quotes by Stephen Kinzer

Great Patience quotes by Allan Lokos

(From The Lightning-Struck Heart) - Author: T.J. Kline
Great Patience quotes by T.J. Kline

Great Patience quotes by Philip K. Dick

#57. Look, Mrs. McGillicuddy, it's not my fault your son jumped out a dorm room window on Christmas eve. I've written over fifty books as a Columbia professor, all right? You don't do that by holding hands with every at-risk undergraduate who says he's homesick, or he's turning gay, or the dog ate his term paper. I write about Lincoln, and freedom, and great ideas. I don't always have time for students. It's like Dean Martin used to say: if you want to talk, go to a priest.

Great Patience quotes by Eric Foner

Great Patience quotes by David Sturt
#60. A good day - a bad day - so it goes on. Few people can be so tortured by writing as I am. Only Flaubert I think. Yet I see it now, as a whole.

Great Patience quotes by Virginia Woolf

Give me the blessedness and release of knowing I am completely, absolutely, freely forgiven through Jesus. Amen. - Author: Timothy Keller

#66. What's great about the Sundance Film Festival is the festival takes over that town as it's intended to do. But, it's very focused on a lot of other filmmakers and distributors so it almost feels like, while they're a lot of so-called civilians there, it's an opportunity that you have to see, to show your stuff to the other folks, your peers really, and to get that reaction. - Author: Alex Gibney
Great Patience quotes by Alex Gibney
#67. All things great are wound up with all things little. - Author: L.M. Montgomery
Great Patience quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#68. A few weeks ago, my manager asked: "Do you feel like you're back? I feel like you're back." She meant it as a total compliment, but we had this great conversation where I was like, "You know what? I try really hard not to use that language, because it's not about going backward in life." I think it comes from this culture of antiaging, which is so not loving ourselves. I've been really focused on not being "back" to anything, but being the best version of myself right now. My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle. - Author: Kerry Washington
Great Patience quotes by Kerry Washington
