42 Thoughtful Wait Quotes That Will Build Your Patience

Wait

Patience is a virtue that not everyone carries with them. Not everyone is willing to wait. It doesn't matter what they are waiting for, if it takes longer than a little while, then they are not going to wait for it.

You will find this trend mostly in younger people. That generation is bend on instant results. They want everything to happen right away, in a heartbeat. They want to accomplish all their dreams right away without having to work for years on them or give them time to materialize.

But life does not work like that. Life takes its time. It requires everyone to wait. You need to wait for your dreams to become reality, for your true love to come, for that business to grow, and to graduate after completing your studies.

Everything has a waiting period. Some things take longer than others. Some people can graduate after 4 years while others need 7 years to graduate. Some people meet the love of their life while in kindergarten while others have to wait for 40 years.

We all have different timings for things. Just because someone else has already made it doesn't mean that you should already have too. Your time is yet to come, so simply wait. Patience, hard work, and resilience will gradually take you there.

Even when you feel like you have waited a long time already, don't quit now. You have already come this far, why not wait just a little longer? This collection of wait quotes is a reminder that most things are worth the wait.

They could take a month, 5 years, or even 10 years. But never forget that the best things take their time. And when they are here at last, you will be glad that you waited for them. Read on!

Don’t wait for the good woman. She doesn’t exist. There are women who can make you feel more with their bodies and their souls but these are the exact women who will turn the knife into you right in front of the crowd.
