A man watches his pear tree day after day, impatient for the ripening of the fruit. Let him attempt to force the ripening of the fruit, and he may spoil both fruit and tree. But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear at length falls into his lap. ~ Abraham Lincoln ~
It is not easy to be patient, but patience remains a valuable tool in life. We don’t always get instant gratification, and some of the best things in life require years of hard work and waiting. Fortunately, patience is a virtue that can be cultivated and nurtured. It does take time to fulfill this goal, but once this has grown into an ordinary skill for you, you certainly won’t be disappointed at what life can offer you. You will be surprised by how restless hours can evolve into a passing time of relaxation and peace of mind.
