Patience is strength. It is the greatest and sublimest power. Patience can work wonders. It can move mountains. Patient working can achieve anything in this world. It will surmount every obstacle in the search after truth. A patient man can have what he will. Everything comes if you will wait. To know how to wait is the great secret of success. Patience lies at the root of all pleasures. Patience develops willpower and the power of endurance. Be patient in little things. Learn to bear the daily trials and annoyances quietly and calmly. You will develop great strength and bear severe calamities, privations, sufferings and adversities. Patience strengthens the spirit, sweetens the temper, stifles anger, develops the will-force, extinguishes jealousy, subdues pride, controls the organ of speech, and restrains the hand.
