Patience is not sitting and waiting, it is foreseeing. It is looking at the thorn and seeing the rose, looking at the night and seeing the day. Lovers are patient and know that the moon needs time to become full.
Rumi - Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there - love this quote from Rumi, it's all about being more open minded, the world has never been black and white / good or evil!
