Eknath Easwaran Thoughts on Patience

Patience is the real badge of courage; it is equally the mark of love.

If you want to excel in anything, master any skill, patience is an asset.

What use is money if we live in exasperation with those we love, if we cannot stand to live with our own family?

We seldom realize what power there is in patience. All the energy consumed in exploding against others, in retaliating, in unkind words, in the anger that brings grief to others and ulcers to ourselves – all that energy can be harnessed as positive, creative power, simply by learning patience.
