Sunday Insight: PATIENCE
A man who can wait,
for it marks a great heart endowed with patience;
never to be in undue haste, or excited.
Be first the master of yourself,
and you will thereafter be the master of others;
one must journey far through time to get to the core of anything.
A prudent waiting brings season to accomplishment and ripeness
to what is hidden.
The crutch of time accomplishes more than the iron club of Hercules.
God himself does not tame with a whip, but with time, a great truth this: Time and I ‘gainst any two.
Fortune herself crowns patience with heavy garlands.
