Things may serve long, but not serve ever.
      - William Shakespeare

More can I bear than you dare execute.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Suffolk at IV, i)

I will be flesh and blood;
  For there was never yet philosopher
    That could endure the toothache patiently,
      However they have writ the style of gods
        And make a push at chance and sufferance.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)

As in labor, the more one doth exercise, the more one is enabled to do, strength growing upon work; so, with the use of suffering, men's minds get the habit of suffering, and all fears and terrors are to them but as a summons to battle, whereof they know beforehand they shall come off victorious.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

To the disgrace of men it is seen that there are women both more wise to judge what evil is expected, and more constant to bear it when it happens.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

The women of the poorer classes make sacrifices, and run risks, and bear privations, and exercise patience and kindness to a degree that the world never knows of, and would scarcely believe even if it did know.
      - Samuel Smiles

They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil)

Endurance is the prerogative of woman, enabling the gentlest to suffer what would cause terror to manhood.
      - Christoph Martin Wieland
