“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.” — Aristotle

Don’t bite into the fruit too soon. It’s gross. Just a little longer and it will be perfect for eating.

Similarly,

Don’t quit just before the breakthrough.

Don’t drop the ball at the one-yard-line.

Don’t give up when help is on the way.

Don’t abandon the cause when favor is mounting.

Don’t fall back when the enemy is on his heels.

Be patient. Just a little longer. Something good is on the way.

I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. (Psalm 40:1)
