....patience

....so paul goodman has just jumped into my list of honest authors. He decided to share and so did I, "Patience is drawing on underlying forces;it is powerfully positive, though to a natural view it looks like just sitting it out. How would i persist against positive eroding forces if i were not drawing on invisible forces? And patience has a positive tonic effect on others; because of the presence of the patient person, they revive and go on, as if he were the gyroscope of the ship providing a stable ground. But the patient person himself does not enjoy it."

I really enjoy the honesty of this role, and the fact that it must be done.

Thats a good quote, both encouraging and sobering.
