    They say the reward of patience, (the practice of patience, itself) is patience, (the quality of having patience).

    I have infinite patience for some situations and people and ZERO patience for others.

    How does it work for you?

    Patience comes easy when you see a reward for the effort, like a garden.

    Patience is difficult when waiting at the DMV.

    I am infinitely patient with children, the elderly and with people who are ill. I have no patience for Scott Lively and Martin Ssempa, and those who support them.

    I have no patience with people who are deliberately hurtful to others and get off on it.

    Not in such absolute terms...I will say that I have gained more patience with age.

    I'm letting patience be my teacher. When I have it, when I don't, Insight.

    I have some patience for kids and some for the elderly and infirm, but I want to finish the job and move on - probably explained by years as a family photographer and a short stint as an EMT.

    :dunno: Never heard of Scott or Marty.

    Cruelty and meanness deserved to be addressed and addressed quickly.

    Patience is a great teacher when coupled with honest reflection. Without reflection though, patience is just waiting.

    Scott wrote the Pink Swastika which blames the Holocaust on gays. He went to Uganda and worked with Martin Ssempa to develop the "kill gays" legislation. Marty shows gay porn in church.

    In general, I am too lazy to be patient.
