Oh, I just realised that he could be trying to ask the meaning of "Patience pays". If that's the case, Boris, it's very important that you learn to delineate your examples in some way. We normally use quote marks.
If it says "Patience pays" on the tag attached to your teabag, it means "If you are patient and give your tea time to infuse, you will appreciate the flavour of it more than you would if you were to be impatient and drink it too soon.
