Kim
Il tempo viene per chi sa aspettare
Explanation:
If you want to translate it with a proverb, rather than in a literal way, this is what I'd say.
(The time comes for those who wait)


See this site of proverbs
http://crh.choate.edu/language/italiano/proverbi_italiani.ht...
Il tempo viene per chi sa aspettare.
All things come to those who wait.

With Google and a bit of patience I also found:

I sogni si avverano per chi sa aspettare (dream come true to those who wait)
Tutto arriva per chi sa aspettare (Everything comes to those....)

However I would go for the first solution, as more proverb like and tight.

Chi la dura la vince


Explanation:
Dear Kim,

this is MY grandmother's refrain :) The general sense is, that those who hang on and wait will win (have the good part of it).

Hope it helps!

ALl versions are good though :)
