Patience

Mrs George MacDonald in a letter to her children:

Don't get weary of forbearing each other and patiently loving.  I feel that Love wants patience more perhaps than anything - to keep it alive and flowering - to water its roots too.  It won't grow without it.  For even our dearest don't always fit into our notions of what we thought they would do, look or speak.
