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
When the mind is disturbed, it is outwardly strong. The mind that is not disturbed is inwardly strong. Your inner strength is always more dependable than your outward display of strength.
—Gurudeva
