Patience, According to Da Vinci

da-vinci-profile“Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.”

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)
Artist, architect and engineer

“Patience serves as protection against wrongs”

Over at Why Homeschool the Cates have put up this amazing quote:

“Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.”

I must say that I never thought of patience and dealing with wrongs done against us like this. I’m going to have to ponder over this one.
