There’s a great passage in the Bible talking about patience. I don’t remember what it says exactly, but the bottom line is that the more patient we are, the wiser we grow. It makes sense, I think. However, I find it very strange that even though I know that being patient will ultimately make me wiser, I still can’t do it. I try to, but whenever I’m in an argument, for example, I just lose it.

Today though, while having a very long run around Battersea Park, I think I realized why people that have plenty of patience are wiser: because they take the time to listen. Now I know.
