Take Your Time, Enjoy the Ride

Quotes and Notes #164, April 17

“I told her I’d wait forever for her, but that was before I found somebody else who’d give me a ride home.”—Jarod Kintz, “This Book is Not For Sale”—

I was patiently looking for a suitable sensitive quote on patience when I came across this wonderful observation that makes my point with humor.

I have been a professional plant tender for over forty years and I have been forced to learn patience. I have, for instance, had the pleasure of starting plant pruning and shaping projects that take years to show the desired results and are never finished. You see, as in other endeavors, the joy is in the process—not in the end result.

So take the side roads in some of the things that are going on in your life. Be patient. Enjoy the scenery along the way.

And never forget to share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right
