Be patient with everyone,
but above all with yourself.
I mean, do not be disheartened by your imperfections,
But always rise up with fresh courage.
How are we to be patient in dealing with our neighbors’ faults
if we are impatient in dealing with our own?
He who is fretted with his own failings will not correct them.
All profitable correction comes from a calm, peaceful mind.

– St. Francis de Sales
