Who ever came up with that saying, obviously had little insight about the meanings of the terms "anxious" or "impatient". The wait, the curiosity, the mental energy, none of it can be soothed by this quote. If you ask around, I am sure people would rather hear bad news than nothing at all.
That is, unless we are talking about my parents, who get worried when I do call home :)
"Is he alive",
"Does he like me",
"Is he coming"
To each their own drama
So no news about the boy I was pursuing (in "you don't know me...")
The good news?
I moved on.
