When I’m training for a fight, I’m not the same person that I normally am when I’m at home. I’m always thinking about fighting. I’m doing it day in and day out. Pretty soon, my personality starts to change. My temper’s a little bit shorter, I don’t have a lot of patience for a lot of things.
Rashad Evans

Ralph Marston

Seth Shostak

Movies require a lot of patience. I like instant results. If I have done something that’s not funny at all, the audience will let me know in two seconds. With the movie, I will have to wait nine months to know if I was that bad.

I try not to set myself up as different or as a celebrity or special. I have a husband that can get on my nerves. I have kids that test my patience. I’ve got a cat I can’t keep off the sofa. It’s real. On a bad day, I’m reading ‘Acts of Faith.’
Iyanla Vanzant

John Curran
285
I think writing novels has taught me more about the value of patience and being organized. I’ve learned to use timelines and wikis to track decisions and make sure everything still fits together. It’s both easier and harder than writing short fiction.

I am a terrible chef; I’m not a good cook. I don’t have the talent, the patience, the desire even to cook the way these great artists that I meet around the world cook, and I’m very, very happy to support them. I invest in restaurants because I love them so much.

Gerry Adams
303
Balance takes work. Lots of it. There is no endpoint in balance, no goal, no finalization. Balance requires practice, patience, and – most importantly – movement. We often get stuck in our ways and form habits based on our fears and driven by our insecurities.

Kevin Hart

I’m very caring with animals. I think patience is a big deal, because animals are always jumping around. I love to take care of people, so I think I’d be a good vet. I always wanted to be a vet when I was little.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
316
I went in to Reading with the full backing of the chairman, who was great to me, and I got 20 games.
