I was reading and came along this quote:

I have learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers.
Kahlil Gibran

I rather liked it.

I adore his writings. I have a couple of his books at home and they just give me such peace when I read them. That is an especially good quote.

I am rarely grateful to unpleasant/rude/hateful folks. I imagine this is true for most people.

For that matter, the author of the poem isn't grateful either.
