There is no doubt that patience often seems crucifixion, but one must remember that resurrection is always reached through crucifixion. Patience often seems like the effacement of self, and it is true that it is self-effacement, and yet nothing is lost, for by this practice of control a far greater power is attained. The Persian poets have called patience death; doubtless it is to all appearance death, for it causes activity to cease, but in reality it is a greater life.
