Patient and Strong

“In my experience, men who respond to good fortune
with modesty and kindness are harder to find than
those who face adversity with courage.
For in the very nature of things, success tends
to create pride and blindness in the hearts of men,
while suffering teaches them to be patient and strong.”
Xenophon

Patient and Strong

  1. I had this very discussion with a friend last night, so this is timely for me. I would also add that success sometimes creates arrogance in the hearts of men. Great quote, JR!
