Patience

"In prosperity, caution; in adversity, patience." - Dutch proverb
"On the whole, it is patience that makes the final difference between those who succeed or fail in all things. All the greatest people have it in an infinite degree, and among the less, the patient weak ones always conquer the impatient strong." - John Ruskin

On happiness

"If one only wished to be happy, this could be easily accomplished; but we wish to be happier than other people, and this is always difficult, for we believe others to be happier than they are." - Montesquieu
