Tirukkural 155: Possession of Patience

Who wreak their wrath as worthless are despised; Who patiently forbear as gold are prized

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Some reactions are healthy; others are unhealthy. The reaction to a reaction is destructive, whereas the reaction itself, when viewed with a balanced mind, eventually becomes an asset.
