|Simplicity, patience, compassion.|
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.
– Laozi / Lao-Tzu (604 BC-531 BC)
|A healthy male adult bore consumes each year one and a half times his own weight in other people’s patience.
– John Updike (1932-2009)
