There is a limit at which forbearance ceases to be a virtue.
The kindest and the happiest pair, will find occasion to forbear; find something every day they live, to pity, and perhaps forgive.
If thou would'st be borne with, then bear with others.
Use every man after his deserts, and who shall escape whipping?
To bear injuries, or annoying and vexatious events, meekly, patiently, prayerfully, and with self-control, is more than taking a city.
It is a noble and great thing to cover the blemishes and excuse the failings of a friend; to draw a curtain before his stains, and to display his perfection; to bury his weaknesses in silence, but to proclaim his virtues on the house-top.
Cultivate forbearance till your heart yields a fine crop of it. Pray for a short memory as to all unkindnesses.
