meekness

n.

The Devil's Dictionary

Ambrose Bierce

Uncommon patience in planning a revenge that is worth while.

M is for Moses,
    Who slew the Egyptian.
As sweet as a rose is
The meekness of Moses.
No monument shows his
    Post-mortem inscription,
But M is for Moses
    Who slew the Egyptian.
