I will prepare

I will prepare and some day my chance will come.

~ Abraham Lincoln

Action over patience

Patience is a virtue but you will never ever accomplish anything if you don't exercise action over patience.

One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential.

Meaning is not what you start with but what you end up with.

~ Peter Elbow

We all worry about wasting time, about the years sliding past, about what we intend to do with our lives. We shouldn’t — for there there is a divine irrelevance in the universe that defies calculation. Many men and women win through to a sense of greatness in their lives only by first stumbling and fumbling their way into patterns that gratify them and allow them to utilize their endowments to the maximum.

~ James Michener

Have courage for the great sorrows in life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.

~ Victor Hugo

All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.

~ Alexandre Dumas

It is never to late to be what you might have been.

~ George Eliot (pen name of Mary Anne Evans)

Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

~ John Lennon

Patience with others is Love. Patience with self is Hope. Patience with God is Faith.

~ Adel Bestavros

When you are convinced that all the exits are blocked, either you take to believing in miracles or you stand still like the hummingbird. The miracle is that the honey is always there, right under your nose, only you were too busy searching elsewhere to realize it. The worst is not death but being blind, blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous. 

~ Henry Miller

Caelum non animum mutant qui trans mare currunt (those who cross the sea change the sky, not their spirits). 

~ Horace

Work a little, wait a little, hope a little. The world needs you.
