"The sharpest sting of adversity it borrows from our own impatience."
George Horne

"Perhaps there is only one cardinal sin: impatience. Because of impatience we were driven out of Paradise, because of impatience we cannot return."
W.H. Auden

"A man watches his pear tree day after day, impatient for the ripening of the fruit. Let him attempt to force the process, and he may spoil both fruit and tree. But let him patiently wait, and the ripe fruit at length falls into his lap."
Abraham Lincoln

"Perhaps the believer never does more disservice to religion than to support the truth with bad arguments. The impatient listener, perceiving the obvious errors, often "throws out the baby with the bath" and turns away, even from true religion."
Henry Eyring

"One of the expressions of Western over-reliance on technology can be seen in the lack of patience in industrial society. When you deal with technology, everything happens at the touch of a button. This conditions you to become so impatient that when you have an emotional or personal crisis, you don't allow time for the solution to take effect. This leads to all sorts of rash responses, like quarrels, fights and so on."
Dalai Lama

"Patience is the support of weakness; impatience the ruin of strength"
Charles Caleb Colton

"One moment of patience may ward off great disaster. One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life."
Chinese Proverb
