Verse 73 Courage, Patience and Paradoxes
The world we live in
requires great courage and patience.
Those with great courage, but little patience,
tend to kill or be killed.
Those with great courage as well as great patience
will tend to survive.
But the Great Integrity never judges you
for whatever path you happen to take.
The Great Integrity never strives
but always fulfills itself,
Never is commanded
but always responds.
Never is summoned
but always appears.
Never is impatient
but all is done on time.
