5 Patience Quotes for When You Really Just Want to Kick Some Butt

“Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.” -Joyce Meyer

I picked this Joyce Meyer quote for my first quote today because it speaks to exactly what is going on with me and I felt a tiny rush of “yes – this – exactly this” – when I saw it.

For me, I feel stuck as far as my work goes and I’m not sure what to do next – and it’s making me edgy and irritable.

If that’s where you are too, today, feeling stuck and irritable, whether it’s a relationship issue or a work issue, or something else altogether causing your impatience or frustration – if things are not just how you want them to be – the simple act of keeping your wits about you and focusing on the things that are good in your life can help you through it.

Patience Quotes

“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” – Robert Schuller

I picked this Robert Schuller quote because it’s so easy to rush to action when you are stressed because it’s human nature to want resolution and inner peace, but those hasty decisions are rarely ever the wisest choices.

I know – so well – that staying calm and waiting out an emotional hailstorm is just about the toughest thing to do, but it’s so important to hold on sometimes, and wait for the right answer instead of snatching hold of the first easy answer.

“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” _ Napoleon Hill

It’s so easy to give up on something that’s hard, and while I believe there can be a time to let go, like if you’re in a relationship that is destroying you or a career that is floundering, if you know in your heart that you are doing what you are meant to do, then holding onto patience and persistence, and then throwing in some hard work will get you where you belong – maybe not on your desired time schedule – but in the long run.

Breathe Deep and Hold Onto Inner Peace

“How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success.” – Elbert Hubbard

If you’re struggling with patience right now, first, thanks for sticking with me this far and reading the patience quotes I picked to share today.

Just finding them and putting my thoughts into words has helped me get my breath and feel better about things, and I hope reading them has helped you, too.

When things get really hairy, remember to stop and take a deep breath or two before reacting.

Don’t make your decisions in haste if you can help it, because hasty decisions that are made when you are tense and all tied up in knots over a situation you don’t like, rarely turn out well.

“He that can have patience can have what he will.” – Benjamin Franklin

I wanted to end with this Benjamin Franklin quote because, well, I found it inspiring that one of history’s most famous people summed up the value of being patient and looking at the long-term results in a such a concise and beautiful sentence.
