“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
I needed to find a good quotation about patience because I seem to have lost mine today.
I have padded my life with it. It comforts me to have it. I feel safe when I’m surrounded by it.
Then I run into a day like today. There’s no wrong to face, no particular problem to struggle with. My patience just disappeared without warning.
