“Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner, you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.” – Leonardo da Vinci
Patience is a virtue worth having, especially in dealing with the vicissitudes of life.
Are you a patient person? Do you exude patience with your friends, children, colleague, spouse, or neighbours?
Do you realise there are things in life that require more time than others – time to blossom, to develop, to grow, to mature?
If you don’t learn the art of patience, by allowing life to follow its natural course, chances are that you will continue to force and resist the natural flow of things, inflicting a lot of unnecessary pain onto yourself and onto those around you.
