Real fearlessness is the product of tenderness. It comes from letting the world tickle your heart, your raw and beautiful heart.
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.”
“Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.”
How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?”
“Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.”
“Who ever is out of patience is out of possession of their soul.”
“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.”
Robert H. Schuller
“Come what may, all bad fortune is to be conquered by endurance.”
“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”
“The test of good manners is to be patient with the bad ones.”
Solomon Ibn Gabirol
How small the vastest of human catastrophes may seem at a distance of a few million miles.
