Toni, from A Daily Dose of Toni has this great weekly ritual of posting Favorite Quotes - the quotes that people come up with are very inspiring, so if you haven't had a chance to check out Quotable Sunday, now's your chance! ;) This week my patience has been tested greatly...you'll notice that I reverted back to the standard Google comments because the JS-Kits one was too annoying for some of my readers...and I want to make sure everyone is happy, so I got rid of it...but at a price.
Somehow Blogger misplaced all the wonderful comments left on my posts throughout the past week - so before I could revert back to the standard comment mode, I needed to somehow salvage all the wonderful words that were posted. So I created image files and linked them to each post so they'd still be available for viewing. Which if course set me back ten fold on my blog-hopping and catching up...and sleep...but at least now the standard comment mode will have the easy links to your blogs so I can hop over for a visit without making you leave me a link. So at least there's that. :) Without further ado, here are the quotes for the week:
"Patience and fortitude conquer all things." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"One minute of patience, ten years of peace." Greek proverb
"Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow - that is patience." Unknown
"Patience is the companion of wisdom." Saint Augustine
"The two most powerful warriors are patience and time." Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
"He that can have Patience, can have what he will." Benjamin Franklin
"Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet." Jean-Jacques Rousseau
"God bestows upon one man genius without patience and upon another man patience without genius. The relative achievements of the two are often surprising." Walter C. Klein
"There are three secrets to managing. The first secret is have patience. The second is be patient. And the third most important secret is patience." Chuck Tanner
"Patience is a necessary ingredient of genius." Benjamin Disraeli
"I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end." Margaret Thatcher
Update 9:42 am: I had to add one more quote, because one of my bloggy buddies, Frogs in my Formula triggered a memory... ;)
"Patience is a virtue...but some days I just don't feel virtuous..." Stacy
