Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.
I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves...Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now...the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Let nothing disturb thee; Let nothing dismay thee; All thing pass; God never changes. Patience attains All that it strives for. He who has God Finds he lacks nothing:God alone suffices.
St. Teresa of Avila
Thomas Henry Huxley
He is happy whose circumstances suit his temper; but he is more excellent who can suit his temper to any circumstances.
Imam Ali (A.S.)
Patience is a kind of love. A love that is its own explanation in bewildered circumstance. It is an old, old woman placing a wrinkled-parchment hand against the cheek of a reckless child. Because her heart is too wise to make room for reproach. Too full to find place for offense.

Just saw the "Patience" commercial with the little boy walking in the concrete. Reminds me of how I need to be when working with my students. haha Loved it!
I see alot of your commercials on our AFN channels. My favorite one is the little boy walking in the freshly smoothed concrete and the fella at the end. It makes me laugh and smile each and everytime I see it. Thank you.
