Bellarmine On The Virtue Of Patience

"that virtues like patience is not only one of the greatest virtues but is positively the most necessary for us. True patience has the property of increasing and preserving all other virtues. 
On account of the difficulties we meet with in the practice of virtue, none can flourish without patience, 
but when other virtues are accompanied by this one, all difficulties vanish, for patience renders crooked paths straight and rough paths smooth."
