It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.–LAM. iii. 26.

Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation.–PS. lxii. I.

Not so in haste, my heart;
Have faith in God, and wait;
Although He lingers long,
He never comes too late.
ANON.

The true use to be made of all the imperfections of which you are conscious is neither to justify, nor to condemn them, but to present them before God, conforming your will to His, and remaining in peace; for peace is the divine order, in whatever state we may be.
FRANCOIS DE LA MOTHE FENELON.

You will find it less easy to uproot faults than to choke them by gaining virtues. Do not think of your faults; still less of others’ faults; in every person who comes near you look for what is good and strong: honor that; rejoice in it; and, as you can, try to imitate it; and your faults will drop off, like dead leaves, when their time comes.
J. RUSKIN.
