P to the A to the T to the I to the E to the N to the C to the E

patience :)
  • Ability to accept delay, annoyance or suffering WITHOUT COMPLAINING :)
  • Ability to persevere with something
  • Ability to put off anger
  • Capacity to endure difficulties calmly

Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. 

For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. 
So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, 
and they will then be powerless to vex your mind
Leonardo da Vinci

Patience is sottish, and impatience does become a dog that's mad.
William Shakespeare

Patience has its limits. Take it too far, and it's cowardice.
George Jackson
