Patience

“I am quite gifted at waiting.” Von Rumpel says. I was never much good at athletics or mathematics, but even as a boy, I possessed unnatural patience. I would wait with my mother while she got her hair styled. I would sit in the chair and wait for hours, no magazines, no toys, not even swinging my legs back and forth. All the mothers were very impressed.”
