Patience is also a form of action.
— Auguste Rodin
Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
i especially like this one:
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.
— St. Francis de Sales
…and a helpful note on impatience
There art two cardinal sins from which all others spring: Impatience and Laziness.
— Franz Kafka
