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.
What a big lesson I have learned!
That patience is good to have.
It hardly hurts to wait.
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.
