    I agree, people can only take so much and no matter how patient they are, will eventually let rip. Better to respect patience than to try it.

      Thank you. We shouldn’t want to try anyone’s patience and should always respect patience. If the shoe were on the other foot we would expect people to be patient with us.

      Although I agree with the wording of the quote, I believe we must all work to help others who don’t often get ‘what we get.’ However long it takes we must be patient.

    Very true quote. Some things will crawl up your skin until it reaches your brain. But you can feel your patience waning before fury gets there though.

      Thanks Tim. Yes, quite I totally agree, although I believe we need to work on doing the opposite. We need more patience.

      We must live and breath oodles of the stuff, primarily because being tolerant makes us nicer people to be around and it’s the right thing to do. We never know when we need that to be reciprocated.
