Patience can actually be unlearned, unpracticed, and discarded. Being "patient" is a value judgement.
"Being patient is the assumption (given above) that you are waiting for something better to come along - and in that state, nothing better will come along. "
"When you live in the moment, you do not create the experience of the passage of time, as you do when you're sitting around waiting for things to happen."
Some insights into patience at...
I don't think being patient is that assumption or implies it. So I don't see that as a good analogy for that analogy only gives a concept of waiting.....not patience.
Patience implies not being rushed, panicking etc. You can be patient whilst waiting for something or you can do something with patience. You can even sprint with patience. A virtue indeed I would say.
