“Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is "timing;" it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.” -- Fulton J. Sheen
Another quote I like is about Luck.
Luck is preparation meeting opportunity.
Opportunities come to all of us all the time, but if you are not prepared you cannot act. And Luck is taking those opportunities and acting on them, rather than just passing them by like most.
Patience is not about inaction. Patience is the right action at the right time in the right way.
