From the text:

"....he would say, "Ten paciencia." Have patience. Paciencia, a word with the strength of centuries, a word that said that someday we would overcome .... "You have to learn the language of the Americanos," he said. "Me, I will live my last days in my valley. You will live in a new time. "
