Replying to LO22004 -- shared a great story about patience. I "heard" another theme
in your story, though...and thought I'd clarify that with you.

I wondered if your friend asked "meaningful" questions, and was patient
with the responder and response, because he genuinely wanted to hear what
the person had to say? thought went on...was one of the reasons he wanted to hear what
they had to say motivated by his knowledge that people need to make
themselves conscious about what they know or how they do things before
they can effectively change?

I ask because it seems that your friend may have had a high regard for the
people who worked in the mill...and what they thought about the responses
they gave to his questions.

"Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering
others is strength; mastering yourself is true power." ^WTao Te Ching
