I came across this quote and it made me smile:

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”

Leo Tolstoy

Considering the author’s War and Peace clocks in at 520K plus words (Anna Karenina comes in at less than 350K-slacker), this is fitting. However, it isn’t as daunting as you may think. If you sat down in front of the computer, it would only take 1,400 words a day for a year to hit that mark. Editing is where life would get complicated. So, if I could change the quote, I might say, “The three most powerful warriors are consistency, patience, and time.”
