-- Tirukkural - Earth bears those who dig into her

Namaste, Hari Om,

Just as the Earth bears those who dig into her, it is best to bear with those who despise us.
-- Tirukkural

this is a nice quote. Sometimes in life we want to seek revenge, or feel better through being a weapon of Karma, i.e. being a grim reaper (Mr. Mayhem as some may say i.e. SOA), or delivering non physical retaliation in the form of arguing or holding negative thoughts. 

Those who have patience win in the end. When God is driving your car you do not need to worry about the bumps. When we drive, we hear a bump, we worry, we think what will happen with the car.

Keep God in the driver's seat. Let the negative, hurtful and those who despise us flow off your shoulders like a gentle water fall. 

Those who hold hate hold stress. Those who hold stress are not happy. 

Hari Om, Namaste,

-- Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa (1836-1886)

Suppose a thorn has pierced a man's foot. He picks up another thorn to pull out the one hurting him. After extracting the first with the help of the second, he throws both away. One should use the thorn of knowledge to pull out the thorn of ignorance, then throw away both, and realize God directly.
-- Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa (1836-1886)
