I'd assume he was talking about patience, given the picture you posted!

As someone who always claims - and I think with some justification - to be a patient person, I'm hard-pressed to agree with him. I think I prefer the Dutch proverb, "a handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains" or Burke's comment that "our patience will achieve more than our force" (which certainly resonates with me) and I can't help wondering how many supposedly patient people would add Margaret Thatcher's codecil when she said that "I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end".

Most of all, though, I'd like to believe the old rhyme that goes:

Patience is a virtue,
Possess it if you can.
Never in a woman
Always in a man.

That whooshing sound you can hear is me running away very, very quickly
