Victorious quiet

Today’s QOTD is rom "My Mother Was a Soldier", by William Stafford:

Tapping on my wrist, she talked: "Patience
is the doctor; it says try; it says
they think we’re nice, we quiet ones, we die
so well: that’s how we win, imagining things
before they happen." "No harm in being quiet,"

Published in A Glass Face in the Rain: New Poems, 1982.
