I wonder if our impatience comes because we consume rather than create?
If we never plant a seed how can we appreciate the time it takes the plant to root and to sprout and to grow and bear fruit?
If we never build anything how can we appreciate the time it takes to plan, to lay foundations, to build?
If we never wait on anything how can we know the joy of fulfilment? How can we ever know when something has arrived? How can we know that things have changed?
