Context

“And tears again dimmed his eyes.
* «Everything comes in time to him who knows how to wait.»
«But shan't we have to accept battle?» remarked Prince Andrew.
«We shall if everybody wants it; it can't be helped…. But believe me, my dear boy, there is nothing stronger than those two: patience and time, they will do it all. But the advisers n'entendent pas de cette oreille, voilà le mal. * Some want a thing—others don't. What's one to do?» he asked, evidently expecting an answer. «Well, what do you want us to do?» he repeated and his eye shone with a deep, shrewd look.” source
