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

There are different types of patience: the patience of being indifferent to the harm inflicted by others the patience of voluntarily accepting hardship, and the patience developed through reasoned conviction in the Dharma -Dalai Lama

To develop patience, you need someone who will fully hurts you. Such people give us real opportunities to practice tolerance. They test our inner strength in a way that even our guru cannot. Basically, patience protects us from being discouraged - Dalai Lama

We have been and are still going through endless suffering without deriving any benefit whatever from it. Now that we have promised to be good-hearted, we should try not to get angry when others insult us. Being patient might not be easy. It requires considerable concentration. But the result we achieve by enduring these difficulties will be sublime. That is something to be happy about !

Many people think that to be patient in bearing loss is a sign of weakness. It is anger that is a sign of weakness, whereas patience is a sign of strength. For example, a person arguing a point based on sound reasoning remains confident and may even smile while proving his case. On the other hand ,if his reasons are unsound and he is about to lose face, he gets angry, loses control, and starts talking nonsense. People rarely get angry if they are confident in what they are doing. Anger comes more easily in moments of confusion --dalai lama,
