Swami Chinmayananda Quotes on Patience

To be patient means to suffer something that hinders or hurts us, and still retain our self-composure.

How many difficulties, with their consequent unpleasantness and discord, could be smoothed over and almost entirely eliminated by patience.

Patience always elevates and strengthens our character. We need it not only with others but also with ourselves.

History is full of instances, wherein, victory would have been to the vanquished, if only they had battled a little longer! We often fail for lack of perseverance in our efforts. We leave our work half done in our impatience. Every job demands its quota of efforts. Never give up too soon.
Swami Chinmayananda (8 May 1916 – 3 August 1993)
