When you are angry, you cannot think calmly. Patience, on the other hand, enables you to think over the matter and discover a superior solution to the problem you are facing. In society when controversies and disputes arise, one needs to find out a superior solution to resolve the matter. Keeping patience prevents one from losing one's cool and helps one to arrive at a solution to the issue. One can do this only if one remains patient over the provocations and unpleasant experiences one faces from the other side. Patience allows one to deal effectively with a matter that cannot be dealt with by force.
