Patience (Paciencia...)

It's been some time since Bettina Perroni was featured on my blog! And here she is with Paciencia...

According to Wikipedia, patience is a skill that takes some hominids (Bonobos and humans) to be able to endure any misfortune and difficulty. According to the philosophical tradition, "It is the courage against the evil, and despite the suffering, the man will not be overcome by it”

Thus, we can say that the patient becomes stronger gradually, while the strong always be known patient. Being patient requires an increase in strength when in a logical way naturally fell.

... (Minutes mind blank with absolute silence and I read it again, again, again)

Indeed, patience is not exactly one of my virtues.
I understand that patience is not to seat down and suffer in a passive way while the miracles happen. Oddly, I noticed that the patient images are consistently associated with a chair. Rather, I understand the patience is the grace to wait but investing the energy productively in such a way that seems to reduce the time for the realization of the goal. In a few words it is the fact to act not by impulse but using the brain.

True or not, it is the conclusion which I have after the hard task of learning to be patient, to control my anxiety because I discovered that the opposite, namely, impatience and lack of control, are the wrong path that has led me to undesirable destinations.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
