It is easy to confuse patience with relaxing. They have much in common, but they can produce entirely different throws.
I used to always lump them together and still do sometimes. But I vividly remember on practice with Bondarchuk where he told me to be patient, perhaps for the millionth time. I responded curtly by saying “Yes, I know, I need to relax.” But rather than agreeing he raised his voice. “Patient! No relax!” I thought it was the language barrier at first, but then he made his point loud and clear. And after a few years away from him, he reminded me again when we met last week.
