It's only perspective... Patience, or any reaction/behavior, without instruction or planning, unfolding into a positive event that 'one' can NOT imagine or make happen with physical intention is also 'luck'. Doing 'nothing' or 'waiting for the correct moment' can be the most difficult thing to do. Those that do it well... have a greater sense of Peace in appearnce. It only seems from another perspective to a worthy quality. The truth is Patience is an illussion... Still waters run deep, and patient people break things when no ones looking. Virtue is something one envys in another and over looks in themselves. Bruce Filmore Dunn

What does Patience is a virtue mean?

The phrase "patience is a virtue" is just a way of expressing the importance of being patient. A virtue is a trait or quality deemed to be morally excellent and thus is valued as a foundation of principle and good moral being. Patience can make us better people. The definition of the word is to tolerate delay implying self control and forbearance. When we say "patience is a virtue" we are exposing our moral values and expressing the importance of patience as a foundation of principle. So to answer the question patience is not a virtue until it truly becomes a virtue and knowing how diverse the spectrum of individualism is I'm sure patience is a vice(opposite of virtue) to some. Patience is a necessity for a happy existence and that is why the phrase is so often used. 8A is the best class Read more: Why is patience a virtue
