Just came across this post at Caliblog, which discourses on love and marriage. And most of the stuff is pretty much common sense but as that famous quote goes, it’s pretty uncommon. Recommend a look at it. It also ties in with what I have been thinking for the past few days about patience, an often underrated and even overlooked virtue. In this day and age, where a consumerist culture propagates the virtue of indulging every whim, and instant gratification is the norm the pleasure of patience is not very evident. Especially since I am by nature impatient. If I have to do something I have to do it now. But my recent life has been showing me that patience is necessary, it’s also better for my peace of mind. And since one of my other big strengths is perseverance, I definitely need a dose of patience.

  • Patience
  • Shed a tear ’cause I’m missing you

    I’m still alright to smile

    Girl, I think about you every day now

    Was a time when I wasn’t sure

    But you set my mind at ease

    There is no doubt you’re in my heart now

    Said woman take it slow

    It’ll work itself out fine

    All we need is just a little patience

    Said sugar make it slow

    And we’ll come together fine

    All we need is just a little patience

    (inhale) Patience…

    Ooh, oh, yeah

    Sit here on the stairs

    ‘Cause I’d rather be alone

    If I can’t have you right now, I’ll wait dear

    Sometimes, I get so tense

    But I can’t speed up the time

    But you know, love, there’s one more thing to consider

    Said woman take it slow

    Things will be just fine

    You and I’ll just use a little patience

    Said sugar take the time

    ‘Cause the lights are shining bright

    You and I’ve got what it takes to make it

    We won’t fake it, Oh never break it

    ‘Cause I can’t take it

    …little patience, mm yeah, ooh yeah,

    Need a little patience, yeah

    Just a little patience, yeah

    Some more pati… (ence, yeah)

    I’ve been walking these streets at night

    Just trying to get it right (Need some patience, yeah)

    It’s hard to see with so many around

    You know I don’t like being stuck in a crowd (Could use some patience, yeah)

    And the streets don’t change but baby the name

    I ain’t got time for the game

    ‘Cause I need you (Patience, yeah)

    Yeah, yeah well I need you

    Oh, I need you (Take some patience)

    Whoa, I need (Just a little patience is all we need)

    Ooh, this ti- me….
