The Elder Statesman
The elder statesman is the one who sees the wisdom of the group’s
decision, who holds no resentment over his reduced status, whose
judgment, fortified by considerable experience, is sound, and who is
willing to sit quietly on the sidelines patiently awaiting developments.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Tradition Two) p. 135
