"A CLICHE WORTH THOUGHT"

“There is a saying that ‘Patience is a virtue.’ What should be added to these few very beautiful words is: ‘but not always practiced by man,’ or ‘forgotten to be practiced when self, and only self is recognized,’ as the bearer of such an important virtue.

One has to have developed a sense of self-control and self-discipline to be able to practice this virtue in its full value.

Patience is not true patience when it lacks soundness.  True patience has a calmness in it, not a patronizing falseness.

Practice patience as a virtue and it will help you develop sound charity.”
