Yolanda Hadid
The test of good manners is to be patient with the bad ones.
Solomon Ibn Gabirol
TV requires a lot more patience. No one’s ever like, ‘I gotta get up at 5 A.M. and write my stand-up!’ It’s an easy life. With ‘Silicon Valley,’ it’s long hours and very unglamorous.
Kumail Nanjiani
I think writing novels has taught me more about the value of patience and being organized. I’ve learned to use timelines and wikis to track decisions and make sure everything still fits together. It’s both easier and harder than writing short fiction.
Ken Liu
I believe that patience is fundamental in football. It is difficult as sometimes patience is not there. You must have a clear idea and a path you want to take.
Social media is a bit tricky but the key is in patience. I know it’s easier said than done, but I have been patient for six years and never gave up.
Bhuvan Bam
God gives me the children's ministry heart and patience

Willie Aames

Nobu Matsuhisa
I don’t have a lot of patience for boring arthouse movies.
Zoe Kazan

Jerome Boateng
I have discovered the virtue of patience and I don’t quite believe that taking a break for good reason can be a risk.
Dia Mirza
I always tell up-and-coming DJs you have to really love what you do and find that interest to drive you. It requires so much attention to detail, and it takes up a lot of your time. You hear a song, and there are so many little pieces that make that song work. It requires a lot of patience, diligence and resilience.
Steve Aoki
Patience was not something that came naturally to me, but in cooking it is the quintessential skill.

I try not to set myself up as different or as a celebrity or special. I have a husband that can get on my nerves. I have kids that test my patience. I’ve got a cat I can’t keep off the sofa. It’s real. On a bad day, I’m reading ‘Acts of Faith.’
Iyanla Vanzant
The term ‘alpha female’ originated in my field of animal behavior, but has acquired new meaning. It refers to women who are in charge, for example, by flirting and dating on their own terms. It is also used maliciously for a loud-mouthed, controlling woman who has no patience with deviating opinions.
Frans de Waal
Coaching takes patience. I’m more enthused when teaching players who want it versus when I have to.
Kevin Garnett
I tell people a lot of times, if you want to be a part of something, you never know, you kind of just have to be around. A lot of people don’t really have the patience for it, and they don’t stick around. Dre and I are still working together, and we have plenty of music for the future.
Anderson Paak
I have not the smarts or patience for political office.
Henry Rollins
A certain amount of impatience may be useful to stimulate and motivate us to action. However, I believe that a lack of patience is a major cause of the difficulties and unhappiness in the world today.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I’m constantly looking for ways to learn and elevate your craft, patience for yourself, and patience for this business. It’s not a fair business. You may be great, but it may take years for someone to notice what you’re capable of because of politics.
Aldis Hodge
Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.
Samuel Johnson
I couldn’t be a director because I couldn’t put up with the actors. I don’t have the patience. Why, I’d probably kill the actors. Not to mention some of the beautiful actresses.

Thomas Aquinas
Patience with family members and others who are close to us is vital for us to have happy homes.

BeBe Zahara Benet
As I pass it, I feel as if I saw a dear old mother, sweet in her weakness, trembling at the approach of her dissolution, but not appealing to me against the inevitable, rather endeavouring to reassure me by her patience, and pointing to a hopeful future.
Thomas Edward Brown
There are three lessons in philanthropy – one, involve the family, especially the spouse. She can be a remarkable driver of your initiative.

Azim Premji
You have to have patience to be a legislator.
Gene Green
I have learned that you need to have patience, perseverance, and faith in people to reach your goals.

I think patience is a skill and I wish I had it.
David Duchovny
You can write ten versions of a scene, and then, on the

You can write ten versions of a scene, and then, on the day, discover that something in the original scene worked. It’s hard on writers. Hard on actors, hard on editors, hard on me, hard on the producers, who require patience and confidence. But I can’t get to the end without going through this process.
Bennett Miller
These short tracks are about patience. You have to show patience.

Paulina Porizkova
Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
The Italians are not indulgent, as Americans are. They don’t have the patience to teach young singers how to move. They think you should learn in school.
Marcello Giordani
There’s a randomness, even if you’re talented. This is a very unforgiving industry that puts you through the ringer. It is not easy by any means, but it’s one of those things that if you have the patience, the perspective, and the talent, it can really take off.
Anthony Carrigan
When I first started submitting my work professionally – and we’re talking years and years ago – I had no patience for editorial response times. I hated waiting to hear back from people, hated waiting to see my work in print.
Cullen Bunn
My friends wonder how I have the patience to engage with people on Twitter about topics such as diversity and why black British history should be taught in schools: surely it’s exhausting? And they’re right.
Lolly Adefope

Hrithik Roshan

Funnily enough, it had just started to pick up, but they lost their patience.
Brendan Rodgers

And when you trust God, you’re able to be more patient. Patience is not just about waiting for something… it’s about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting.

Brett Eldredge

Reshma Saujani
Becoming a father allowed me to become a much better co

Becoming a father allowed me to become a much better composer, because it allowed me to have tremendous patience. I have much more tolerance for opposing opinions, short attention spans, changes of heart. And faith in the future.
James Newton Howard
Opera is complex for those who perform it, but also for those who listen to it. It takes more time, more patience and more spirit of sacrifice. All this is well worth it because opera offers such deep sensations that they will remain in a heart for a lifetime.

Butch Hartman

Shweta Basu Prasad
To understand a difficult topic like Iraq takes patience and care. Unfortunately, you rarely hear a patient, careful or thoughtful discussion of intelligence these days.
George Tenet
The principal reason for the universe’s poker face is that its constituents are far away. Stars careen through space, and galaxies spin at speeds thousands of times faster than a jet plane. But given their distance, you’d need the patience of Job to notice much change in their appearance or position.
Seth Shostak
Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.

Jean de La Fontaine
When I'm training for a fight, I'm not the same person

When I’m training for a fight, I’m not the same person that I normally am when I’m at home. I’m always thinking about fighting. I’m doing it day in and day out. Pretty soon, my personality starts to change. My temper’s a little bit shorter, I don’t have a lot of patience for a lot of things.
Rashad Evans
I have no patience at all.
Alan Sugar
The greatest power is often simple patience.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Paul Walker
