Be not perplexed,
Be not afraid,
Everything passes,
God does not change.
Patience wins all things.
He who has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

Teresa of Ávila (1515-1582) Spanish mystic, poet, philosopher, saint
“Poem IX”

Alt trans., Complete Works St. Teresa of Avila, Vol. 3 (1963) [ed. Peers]:
"Let nothing disturb thee;
Let nothing dismay thee:
All thing pass;
God never changes.
Patience attains
All that it strives for.
He who has God
Finds he lacks nothing:
God alone suffices."
