Can You be Just a Little Bit Patient?

Quotes and Notes #261, July 23, 2015

A fish waits patiently for its snack

A fish waits patiently for its snack

“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

The fish waits for his snack. The snack is patiently flying around looking for just the right place to land softly on the water. Things work out.

I have grown many plants. Once, when I was 25 years old, I was talking to an old man of 70. We talked about getting seeds for a rare plant and I remarked, “There’s not much sense in that because it will be five years before we get a mature specimen.” The old man smiled and said, “In that case, we had better get started.” We planted the seed and patiently waited. I don’t even remember what the plant was but I do remember the lesson. I will be 70 soon.

Be patient. Share a smile with those who don’t understand
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
