Mushrooms attain their full power in a night;
oaks require decades.
Fads are around for a few months;
a philosophy lives and impacts generations.
Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold.
For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you.
So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs,
and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)
Making any change requires patience.
Cultivating patience is really learning impulse control.
We Must Patiently Persevere.
God often does us a favor by giving us more time to get ready.
One of the best ways we can invest our energy during a dream’s delay
is in preparing more fully for the responsibilities
it will require if it comes about.
God's way, time, will, and solutions are always best.
So often we are looking for quick fixes and instant results;
however, true growth takes time.
