I was thinking about patience as I was looking for the perfect spot for my new little plant. Now that schools have started - first classes tomorrow - I need to remind myself that I have to be patient at work... and to be honest that is one of the virtues I don't possess.
I looked up some quotes about patience as a reminder of how important it is.
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance. ~Franklin P. Jones
How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young? ~Paul Sweeney
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. ~John Quincy Adams
