Patience

"A man who rode the ferry to work prided himself on his punctuality. But one day he overslept. Fearing he'd be in trouble with his boss, he raced to the dock only to see the boat six feet out from the terminal. Taking a leap, he landed on the deck. Smiling, the captain said, 'Great jump! But if you'd waited another minute we'd have docked and you could've walked on.' Don't be in such a hurry; give it a little time." On the Right Note, December '08 - February '09

"Frodo gave no sign of what was passing in his mind." 3rd person in The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

"Many folk like to know beforehand what is to be set on the table, but these who have labored to prepare the feast like to keep their secret; for wonder makes the words of priase louder . . ." Gandalf in The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

"One day at a time to be patient and strong,
To be calm under trial and sweet under wrong,
Then its toiling shall pass and its sorrow shall cease;
It shall darken and die; and our God will bring peace."
Annie Johnson Flint, (1866 - 1932), poet

"Patience is the ability to keep your motor idling when you feel like stripping your gears." Barbara Johnson, (1927 - 2007) Award-winning Christian author and Women of Faith Speaker
