Patience Quotes

This page is a collection of Patience Quotes.

Patience is a virtue that is often neglected in our fast paced society. Everything in nature is part of a process that unfolds over time. Rushing that process skips essential pieces and builds on a shaky foundation.

I think a police officer said it best while handing out a speeding ticket - "Sometimes slowing down can get you there faster."

Work for what you want, keep moving toward your goals, and let them unfold naturally.

Life is not a destination. The only place we're all headed is death. So slow down and enjoy the journey.
