Friday Philosophy…Patience

Patience ought to be a four letter word.

I’m nearly at my two week mark, post-surgery. Nearly allowed back in the pool, nearly allowed to run again. Last night, I dreamed entirely about swimming – even my dreaded butterfly.

Sigh. I’m not patient.

So, thoughts on patience from minds other than my own:

“The strongest of all warriors are these two – Time and Patience.” ~ Leo Tolstoy

“Water is patient. Dripping water wears away stone.” ~ Margaret Atwood

“Grain by grain, a loaf; stone by stone, a castle.” ~ Yugoslavian proverb

“Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.” ~ Saadi

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

But, really, when focusing upon patience, what blog would be complete without Axl Rose? 😉
