Patience quotes suggest we slow down and take the pace of nature. Patience is also about giving ourselves the gift of time – to be willing to set aside our desire to ‘have it now’ and trust what is ours will come as long as we keep moving forward.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
John Quincy Adams

Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

At one time I thought the most important thing was talent. I think now that the young man or the young woman must possess or teach himself, training himself, in infinite patience, which is to try and to try until it comes right. He must train himself in ruthless intolerance--that is to throw away anything that is false no matter how much he might love that page or that paragraph. The most important thing is insight, that is to be--curious--to wonder, to mull, and to muse why it is that man does what he does, and if you have that, then I don't think the talent makes much difference, whether you've got it or not.
To sit patiently with a yearning that has not yet been fulfilled, and to trust that, that fulfillment will come, is quite possibly one of the most powerful ‘magic skills’ that human beings are capable of. It has been noted by almost every ancient wisdom tradition.
Who can wait quietly until the mud settles? Who can remain still until the moment of action?
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach--waiting for a gift from the sea.
Anne Morrow Lindberg
Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.
A. A. Milne

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer.
Rainer Maria Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke
