"There are many who excuse themselves, saying that if they were in other circumstances they would be much more patient. This is a grave mistake, for it assumes that virtue is a matter of geography, and not of moral effort. It makes little difference where we are; it all depends on what we are thinking about."
Fulton J. Sheen
What is the connection between my thoughts and my actions? How can my thoughts help me to acquire patience regardless of my exterior circumstances? Where ought my thoughts be fixed if I am to grow in virtue?

Spirit Have you thought that maybe you need to be patient and wait for the right opportunity? Patient to see what is in the cards or what God wants you to do? To just jump sometimes is a very bad thing. From the pot to the fire.

November this was taken from a Christian site. So of course It's talking about God's will instead of our own, that at times we need to wait for Him., because He knows now maybe not the time. Or maybe never is. So where are your thoughts are they with God? Or yourself? I see that thinking that you would know who Fulton Sheen is without Bishop in front was a little arrogant on my part.
