Eighteenth-century British poet, essayist, and lexicographer Samuel Johnson once said, 'There is nothing so minute or inconsiderable that I would not rather know it than not know it.'
When once the forms of civility are violated, there remains little hope of return to kindness or decency. / Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) English writer, lexicographer, critic The Rambler, #50 (25 Sep 1750)
Sabr (Arabic: صْبِرْ ṣabr) is the virtue of “patience” or “endurance”. Sabr is characterized as being one of the two parts of faith (the other being shukr). Arabic lexicographers suggest that the root ṣ-b-r, of which ṣabr is the nomen actionis, means to bind or restrain.
