Liza's Thoughts on War

"How stupid you all are, men, ... Forgive me, but you understand nothing about women."

"I don't understand, I decidedly do not understand, why men can't live without war. Why is it that we women want none of it and have no need of it?"

~ Princess Elizavéta Kárlovna Bolkónsky, née Meinen (Liza), War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy
