The Countenance of Patience

Elegant becomes the countenance of one who exemplifies patience. 

         Patience is a form of power. It's sometimes difficult to differentiate patience (which is waiting for the right time) and an absence of action (which is waiting, but not taking into account waiting because of the right principles or actions or ways of approaching the situation). This makes patience a very elegant use of power, but it certainly is a journey to achieve and become skilled at doing so.
         If "Patience" could look like something, what would that face look like to you?

“The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.”
― Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die
