Well now, here's an interesting outlook

This is about seeing the need for patience as a treasure. That certainly turns things around, doesn't it?

Now, there are many, many people in the world, but relatively few with whom we interact, and even fewer who cause us problems. So, when you come across such a chance for practicing patience and tolerance, you should treat it with gratitude. It is rare. Just as having unexpectedly found a treasure in your own house, you should be happy and grateful to your enemy for providing that precious opportunity.

-The Dalai Lama

  1. Yes, very interesting. Dalai Lama is one of the people I look up to the most! I can't remember having read this quote, so thanks for posting it, Ellie. :)
