“No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God.”     ~ Orson F Whitney

“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

“I realized that the deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able to honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray: Thy will be done.”     ~ Elisabeth Elliot

“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.”     ~ John Quincy Adams

“If you’re serious about sanctification, you can expect to experience heart-wrenching moments that try your faith, your endurance, and your patience.”      ~ Sheri L Dew

“Above all, trust in the slow work of God. We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We should like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new. And yet it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability—and that it may take a very long time.”     ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

“Patience is not passive waiting. Patience is active acceptance of the process required to attain your goals and dreams.”    ~ Ray Davis

“Inner peace is impossible without patience. Wisdom requires patience. Spiritual growth implies the mastery of patience. Patience allows the unfolding of destiny to proceed at its own unhurried pace.”     ~ Brian I Weiss

“Patience is not a virtue. It is an achievement.”     ~ Vera Nazarian
