Patience is bitter, but its fruit sweet.
-Jean Jacques Rousseau
Endeavor to be patient in bearing the defects and infirmities of others, of what sort soever they be; for thou thyself also hast many failings which must be borne with by others.
-Thomas A Kempis
>I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.
Vice and sins are a deadly poison; but virtues and good works are a healing medicine.
-St. Francis of Assisi
Enjoy the blessings of this day, if God sends them; and the evils of it bear patiently and sweetly; for this day only is ours; we are dead to yesterday, and we are not yet born to the morrow.
Be patient with everyone, but above all with yourself. I mean, do not be disturbed because of your imperfections, and always rise up bravely from a fall.
-St. Francis de Sales
Nor can we fall below the arms of God, how low soever it be we fall.
