George Jackson once said, "Patience has its limit. Take it too far, and it's cowardice."
But, these days I have different opinion:
Patience has its limit - it's true.
Perseverance keeps me hanging on - no doubt about it.
Take it too far, a little longer - surely I might be going crazy. Crazier than I am now.
So I guess Jon Dryden was right, "Beware of the fury of patient man."
