“Patience gives your spouse permission to be human. It understands that everyone fails. When a mistake is made, it chooses to give them more time that they deserve to correct it.

― Stephen Kendrick, The Love Dare
“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.”
