Loyal Wives, Virtuous Mothers

In general, the Russian women think more than the men, because they act less....[T]hey are better informed, less servile, and possess more energy of sentiment than the other sex. Heroism itself often appears to them natural, and becomes easy. [1839]

Empire of the Czar, the Marquis de Custine, Doubleday, 1989.
