The beauty of the world has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.

Have a little patience

With yourself, with others, with the flow of events, be patient. Patience makes your life less stressful and your world more peaceful.

Patience requires no effort, and it can bring great benefit, not only for you, but for all those around you. The power of patience is yours the moment you choose it.

Do you really need to argue or agonize endlessly about something that doesn’t even matter? There’s rarely any useful value to be gained by proving that you’re right and someone else is wrong.

Instead of becoming more defensive, become more patient and understanding. Spend the moment in genuine joy rather than in stressful combat.

Instead of letting the little things get to you, just let them pleasantly amuse you. Then quickly and completely let them go.

Listen to your heart instead of being dominated by your ego. Have a little patience, and enjoy a lot of quality experience.

— Ralph Marston
