10 Patience Quotes from Literature

"His mind has the clearness of the deep sea, the patience of its rocks, the force of its billows." ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte Life had taught her to be brave, to be patient, to love, to forgive. ~ Rainbow Valley by Lucy Maud Montgomery "Your father, Jo. He never loses patience, never doubts or complains, but always hopes, and works and waits so cheerfully that one is ashamed to do otherwise before him." ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott To hope, and not be impatient, is really to believe. ~ The Adventures of Harry Richmond by George Meredith These fellow-mortals, every one, must be accepted as they are: you can neither straighten their noses, nor brighten their wit, nor rectify their dispositions; and it is these people--amongst whom your life is passed--that it is needful you should tolerate, pity, and love: it is these more or less ugly, stupid, inconsistent people whose movements of goodness you should be able to admire--for whom you should cherish all possible hopes, all possible patience. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot "God bless you for saying that!" cried Miss Harrison. "If we keep our courage and our patience the truth must come out." ~ The Naval Treaty by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Patience, that blending of moral courage with physical timidity. ~ Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy "I feel that there is reason lurking in you somewhere, so we will patiently grope round for it." ~ The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle One of these flaws was, that having been long taught by his father to over-reach everybody he had imperceptibly acquired a love of over-reaching that venerable monitor himself. The other, that from his early habits of considering everything as a question of property, he had gradually come to look, with impatience, on his parent as a certain amount of personal estate, which had no right whatever to be going at large, but ought to be secured in that particular description of iron safe which is commonly called a coffin, and banked in the grave. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens Beth could not reason upon or explain the faith that gave her courage and patience to give up life, and cheerfully wait for death. Like a confiding child, she asked no questions, but left everything to God and nature, Father and Mother of us all, feeling sure that they, and they only, could teach and strengthen heart and spirit for this life and the life to come. ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
