The art best cultivated

is the art of waiting
for the art of being still

or for the strength of clay
that can resist the potter's will.

(Homage to Omar Khayyám)

For I remember stopping by the way
To watch a Potter thumping his wet Clay:
And with its all-obliterated Tongue
It murmur'd -"Gently, Brother, gently, pray!"

(from the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, as translated by Edward Fitzgerald)
