For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise.
There is no such thing as preaching patience into people unless the sermon is so long that they have to practise it while they hear. No man can learn patience except by going out into the hurly-burly world and taking life just as it blows. Patience is but lying to and riding out the gale.
(H. W. Beecher.)
