Hi. In the following sentence from Pride and prejudice, I wonder what the phrase "bore with philosophy" mean. He bore with philosophy the conviction that Elizabeth must now become acquainted with whatever of his ingratitude and falsehood had before been unknown to her. I appreciate a reply.

    He was sure that Elizabeth wouild now become familiar with his ingratitude and falsehood that she'd not been aware of earlier. He bore (endured) that feeling philosophically (calmly and without complaining).

    Edit: I bear with philosophy the realisation that two others beat me to it.
