Is the following sentence grammatical?

Ron's patience exceeds his anger.

Ron is a cool-minded man. He is natural to dislike something and may show anger but when anything of such sort happens, he controls his anger because he has got more patience than anger.

My question is about the word 'exceed' here.

  • He is natural to dislike something.... is NOT grammatical. Nor is anything of such sort.. Commented Nov 19, 2020 at 10:55
  • @Ronald Sole By the way, why is this ungrammatical?

  • You make a fair point. I should have said, not idiomatic. Typical expressions are: of such a nature / kind or of this kind / sort. I have never come across of such sort. That's not to say that you can't use it if you choose. Commented Nov 20, 2020 at 13:44
  • exceeds is greater than. He, naturally, dislikes some things.
