Famous quotes containing the word princes:
“I regard almost all quarrels of princes on the same footing, and I see nothing that marks mans unreason so positively as war. Indeed, what folly to kill one another for interests often imaginary, and always for the pleasure of persons who do not think themselves even obliged to those who sacrifice themselves for them!”
—Mary Wortley, Lady Montagu (16891762)
