Patience is one of the seven virtues, the lesser-known cousins of the seven sins. And indeed, “patience is a virtue” – or so goes the saying. But another saying states that “fortune favors the bold.” So which one is it?
I recall a wise woman once told me to "Never run after a bus or a man, there will always be another one." LOL
I find that patience is the main ingredient necessary to get through difficult times. Yes, it is hard to be patient! But, without patience, you would have no hope.
Patience is waiting, not passively waiting, that is laziness but to keep on going when the going gets rough...........now that is patience.
People often handle life as they do bad weather. They waste away the time waiting for the rain to stop. I’m guilty of that myself at times. Yet the tide of opportunity comes to everyone if you have patience. When your chance comes, take advantage of it.
Can anyone name all the seven virtues?
