Every one ought to bear patiently the results of his own conduct.
  [Lat., Sua quisque exempla debet aequo animo pati.]
      - Phaedrus (Thrace of Macedonia), Fables
         (I, 26, 12)

No school is more necessary to children than patience, because either the will must be broken in childhood or the heart in old age.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
  [Fr., La patience est amere, mais son fruit est doux.]
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Endurance is nobler than strength, and patience than beauty.
      - John Ruskin

Not with out design does Cod write the music of our lives. Be it ours to learn the time, and not be discouraged at the rests. If we say sadly to ourselves, "There is no music in a rest," let us not forget "there is the making of music in it." The making of music is often a slow and pain process in this life. How patiently God works to teach us! How long He waits for us to learn the lesson!
      - John Ruskin

Accustom yourself to that which you bear ill, and you will bear it well.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

There is nothing so disagreeable, that a patient mind can not find some solace for it.

        De Tranquillitate Animi (X, 4)

If we could have a little patience, we should escape much mortification; time takes away as much as it gives.
      - Marquise de Sevigne, Marie de Rabutin-Chantal

It is all men's office to speak patience to those that wring under the load of sorrow; but no man's virtue, nor sufficiency, to be so moral, when he shall endure the like himself.
      - William Shakespeare

To revenge is no valor, but to bear.
      - William Shakespeare

Upon the heat and flame of thy distemper sprinkle cool patience.
      - William Shakespeare

The undiscovered country, from whose bourn
  No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have
      Than fly to others that we know not of?
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, i)

What you have said
  I will consider; what you have to say
    I will with patience hear, and find a time
      Both meet to hear and answer such high things.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Brutus at I, ii)

A high hope for a low heaven. God grant us patience!
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost
         (Longaville at I, i)

'Tis all men's office to speak patience
  To those that wring under the load of sorrow,
    But no man's virtue nor sufficiency
      To be so moral when he shall endure
        The like himself.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)

How poor are they that have not patience!
  What wound did ever heal but by degrees?
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii)

Had it pleased heaven
  To try me with affliction, had they rained
    All kinds of sores and shames on my bare head,
      Steeped me in poverty to the very lips,
        Given to captivity me and my utmost hopes,
          I should have found in some place of my soul
            A drop of patience.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Othello at IV, ii)

Yet thou dost look
  Like Patience gazing on kings' graves and smiling
    Extremity out of act.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at V, i)

Still have I borne it with a patient shrug,
  For suff'rance is the badge of all our tribe.
    You call me misbeliever, cutthroat dog,
      And spit upon my Jewish gaberdine,
        And all for use of that which is mine own.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Shylock at I, iii)

I have heard
  Your Grace hath ta'en great pains to qualify
    His rigourous course; but since he stands obdurate,
      And that no lawful means can carry me
        Out of his envy's reach, I do oppose
          My patience to his fury, and am armed
            To suffer with a quietness of spirit
              The very tyranny and rage of his.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Antonio at IV, i)

She pined in thought;
  And, with a green and yellow melancholy,
    She sat like Patience on a monument,
      Smiling at grief.

        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Viola at II, iv)

Patience is the panacea; but where does it grow, or who can swallow it?
