A Buddhist's Companion

I was reading this book "A Buddhist's Companion" just now and chanced upon a very meaningful passage about "Patience" which I think it's good to share with others. It says: "Knowing how and why we differ in thought and outlook on life, we are able to make ample allowances for all types of people and are thus able to live more harmoniously with others. Patience brings forth peace, success, happiness and security. Patience means endurance and it means the forbearance of others' wrongs whereas wisdom is the power of seeing things as they truly are, and how to act rightly when the problems of life come before us." Don't you think this passage is very meaningful :)
