"I didn't just jump back on the bike and win. There were a lot of ups and downs, good results and bad results. But this time I didn't let the lows get to me." -Lance Armstrong

“Plug away carefully and consistently, and keep the mindset that things are going to get better even though you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are living in a microwave society where we want instant results. But it’s not that kind of party. Patience and a spirit of expectation and trust will help you work to reach your goals and dreams.” –Les Brown

"Patience is not passive; on the contrary, it is active; it is concentrated strength." -Novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton

“The man who is impatient with weakness will be defective in his leadership. The evidence of our strength lies not in streaking ahead but in a willingness to adapt our stride to the slower pace of our weaker brethren, while not forfeiting our lead. If we run too far ahead, we lose our power to influence.”
–Dale Brown

"The best teachers I've know are intolerant people. They don't tolerate mistakes." –Bob Knight

“Impatience with others is a visible expression of selfishness and lack of self-discipline.” –Napoleon Hill

“Coaching is a great balance between demand and patience. The coaches who are demanding -- constantly demanding -- are not particularly good coaches. The coaches who are extremely patient are not particularly good coaches. There's a balance between the two that I think is really important. Patience allows for development; demand brings about development at a rate that you have to have." –Bob Knight

"I've never been a patient man. I demand more of my players at this stage of the game than they're capable of giving." –Dean Smith
