Anarchist, pacifist, georgist, applied point of view. Patience as a result of tribulations endured well, through time. Many, if not all, fall short of Liberty and Freedom when embracing Tolstoy's georgist, socialist beliefs of equality.

Reminds me of Isaiah 30:15 — 
In quietness and inconfidence shall be your strength.

Time and patience are great solicitors and enablers in proper or appropriate context. I can't say I would use them in the same way Tolstoi did here (maybe, sometimes, could be).
