Four downfalls related to patience
1. Parting from the four noble disciplines: not retaliating when scolded by others, humiliated by others, hit by others or even when killed by others
2. Neglecting those who are angry with you
3. Refusing to accept the apologies of others
4. Acting out thoughts of anger; not opposing the arousal of anger within one's mind by reflecting upon its harmful consequences, etc.
