Be patient

Many people miss their blessings in life because they are not patient enough to wait so that what they want may come. They are too much in a hurry. They go too fast or they take off before what they want comes; and when it does come, it does not find them. The following poem tells us to be patent. The patient dog eats the fattest bone. It is titled Be patient.

Be patient!
What a big lesson I have learned!

That patience is good to have.

It hardly hurts to wait.
Be Patient

If there’s something that you want,

And the results are slow to come,

It’s often good to sit and wait.

Give time a chance to play its part.

Many also win who sit and wait.

Not all the times is the race for the swift;

Many a time, slow and steady wins the race.

As we used to say

The patient dog eats the fattest bone.

  1. I totally agree, patience is a virtue you cannot find often any more in our busy rushed world. Luckily that is one thing I am known for, my patience and I am proud of it!

  2. Quite encouraging indeed; considering that as human one must undergo trials, temptations, tough times, etc all in a bid to strengthen one. Thus, all these and more should be watered with patience and endurance as Dr. Ngobs rightly prescribes above.

  3. The patient dog eats the fattest bone truly, but sometimes as human beings the patience becomes inelastic and the patient dog might not even meet a bone to eat.
