We cannot learn real patience and tolerance from a guru or a friend

 “We cannot learn real patience and tolerance from a guru or a friend. They can be practiced only when we come in contact with someone who creates unpleasant experiences. According to Shantideva, enemies are really good for us as we can learn a lot from them and build our inner strength.”

~ H.H. the Dalai Lama
