“Adopt the pace of nature;
her secret is patience.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

“When I run after ehat I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me,
and without pain.”

~ Rumi

 

“Do you have patience to wait until your mud settles,
and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving until the right action arrives by itself?

~ Lao Tzu (Toa Te Ching)

How do you know that the side you are used to
is better than the one to come?”

~Rumi

“If you only say one prayer in a day, make it
‘Thank you’.”
