Patience and Grit

Grand Central Terminal

"Mass hysteria is a terrible force, yet New Yorkers always seem to escape it by some tiny margin: they sit in stalled subways without claustrophobia, they extricate themselves from panic situations by some lucky wisecrack, they meet confusion and congestion with patience and grit--a sort of perpetual muddling through."
E.B. White, Here is New York
