Great thought on patience

I went to post this thought and found that I had already posted it three years ago.

But it is such a great thought I am posting it again:

From Dan Galvin's Thought For The Day mailing list:

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 (1452-1519)
Artist, architect and engineer
