I love these definitions, the best I think.
Patience: The capacity to be wronged and not retaliate.
Let me just say this...I don't think it's possible. It's so hard not to strike back when we are wronged..But, part of Love, according to 1 Cor. 13 is to be patient. So, we need to do everything possible to hold it back. The greek definition of patience is...takes a long time to boil. That's a great mental image for me.
Faith: The quality which gives us mastery over life's difficulties.
