"In the face of delay or provocation"

Patience is one of the things that I'm working on in my chess.

Sometimes this is very easy. Once you reach a won position in which you have time to find a good winning plan, you can take your time, use it efficiently, or wait for mistakes from the opponent.

 


Patience is also very handy when one needs to defend.

See here a recent example of a "fortress" of 2 bishops and pawns versus a queen and pawns :



Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on negative annoyance/anger
