A Mystic's Revenge

"If you wait by the river long enough, the bodies of your enemies will float by."

Sun Tzu

Fact check: true.

But it needn't be so martial. You can get very far from this use case and still have it be true. Anything you feel tempted to resist eventually ceases and dissolves. Time is on your side. The most energetic opposition (or even mere annoyance) is defeated by sustained patience.
We all know what happened to the guy who said "Look on my works and despair."
If you are 1. patient (that takes work) and 2. not needy (that takes a lot of work), time is always on your side.
Why "not needy"? Time alone won't bring you ice cream.
