" ... is not the patience which can sit down and bow the head and let things descend upon it and passively endure until the storm is passed ... it is the spirit which can bear things not simply with resignation, but with blazing hope; it is not the spirit which sits statically enduring in one place, but the spirit which bears things because it knows that these things are leading to a goal of glory; it is not the patience which grimly hopes for the end, but the patience which radiantly hopes for the dawn ... it is the quality which keeps a man on his feet with his face to the wind. it is the virtue which can transmit the hardest trial into glory because beyond the pain, it sees the goal."
