Waiting vs. Patience

Today's a quickie. I found this quote that I thought perfectly describes the whole writer's journey:

"Patience [is] far more than simply waiting for something to happen---patience require[s] actively working toward worthwhile goals and not getting discouraged when results didn't appear instantly or without effort."

~Dieter F. Uchtdorf

So on the money! But it really is too bad we can't just sit back and wait. Sometimes I just need to do nothing and be lazy. Guess it doesn't get me anything but well-rested though ;)
