Rule # 9- Patience

Patience by Arsh

Rule # 9

Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be farsighted enough to trust the end result of a process. What does patience mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be so shortsighted as to not be able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full.

-The Forty Rules of Love

And when I once said patience doesn’t means enduring something, I was right about it 🙂 Patience means to see the lighter side in the dark, to look for the softness in a hard thing, to see the stars in the night. Those who aren’t patient don’t ever know what would happen next. Only a truly patient person knows how to feel the scent of such a long wait!


For it’s the patience

That shows

The bright side

of momentary life!
