    Default I've found a PATIENCE mine......

    ....and I've decided to share a few of the "gems" I've found as it appears that many of our posters need to take in these little "gems", to look at and cherish them and perhaps give their blood pressure a break.

    Sit back and wait for an expected outcome without experiencing anxiety, tension, or frustration.

    The patience of man, which is right and laudable and worthy of the name of virtue, is understood to be that by which we tolerate evil things with an even mind, that we may not with a mind uneven desert good things, through which we may arrive at better. Wherefore the impatient, while they will not suffer ills, effect not a deliverance from ills, but only the suffering of heavier ills. Whereas the patient who choose rather by not committing to bear, than by not bearing to commit, evil, both make lighter what through patience they suffer, and also escape worse ills in which through impatience they would be sunk.

    St. Augustine of Hippo

    Patience (Pa"tience) (?), n.
    [F. patience, fr. L. patientia. See Patient.]

    1. The state or quality of being patient; the power of suffering with fortitude; uncomplaining endurance of evils or wrongs, as toil, pain, poverty, insult, oppression, calamity, etc.

    Chinese proverb

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

    John Quincy Adams

    Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.

    I"m sure there are others that have patience mines and it would be nice if you shared some of your "gems"
