Catalina II de Rusia , llamada Catalina la Grande fue emperatriz de Rusia durante 34 años, desde el 28 de junio de 1762 hasta su muerte, a los 67 años. Catalina recogió el legado de Pedro el Grande, «una ventana hacia Occidente en la costa del Báltico»[2]​ y lo engrandeció abriéndola en el Mar Negro. Pedro importó tecnología, instituciones de gobierno y organización militar y Catalina trajo de Europa la filosofía jurídica, política y moral además de medicina, arte, cultura y educación.

La vida de Catalina se divide en dos partes, aproximadamente de la misma duración. Entre 1729 y 1762, pasó de ser una princesa alemana a una gran duquesa rusa; de 1762 hasta que falleciera en 1796, fue la emperatriz de Rusia. La principal fuente de información sobre su vida son sus Memorias[3]​ escritas en francés y en inglés.

Frases Catalina II de Rusia

„The Grand Duke appeared to rejoice at the arrival of my mother and myself. I was in my fifteenth year. During the first ten days he paid me much attention. Even then and in that short time, I saw and understood that he did not care much for the nation that he was destined to rule, and that he clung to Lutheranism, did not like his entourage, and was very childish.“

—  Catherine the Great
Context: The Grand Duke appeared to rejoice at the arrival of my mother and myself. I was in my fifteenth year. During the first ten days he paid me much attention. Even then and in that short time, I saw and understood that he did not care much for the nation that he was destined to rule, and that he clung to Lutheranism, did not like his entourage, and was very childish. I remained silent and listened, and this gained me his trust. I remember him telling me that among other things, what pleased him most about me was that I was his second cousin, and that because I was related to him, he could speak to me with an open heart. Then he told me that he was in love with one of the Empress’s maids of honor, who had been dismissed from court because of the misfortune of her mother, one Madame Lopukhina, who had been exiled to Siberia, that he would have liked to marry her, but that he was resigned to marry me because his aunt desired it. I listened with a blush to these family confidences, thanking him for his ready trust, but deep in my heart I was astonished by his imprudence and lack of judgment in many matters.

„The Usage of Torture is contrary to all the Dictates of Nature and Reason; even Mankind itself cries out against it, and demands loudly the total Abolition of it.“

—  Catherine the Great
Context: The Usage of Torture is contrary to all the Dictates of Nature and Reason; even Mankind itself cries out against it, and demands loudly the total Abolition of it. <!-- Item 123

„To tempt, and to be tempted, are things very nearly allied“

—  Catherine the Great
Context: To tempt, and to be tempted, are things very nearly allied, and, in spite of the finest maxims of morality impressed upon the mind, whenever feeling has anything to do in the matter, no sooner is it excited than we have already gone vastly farther than we are aware of, and I have yet to learn how it is possible to prevent its being excited. Flight alone is, perhaps, the only remedy; but there are cases and circumstances in which flight becomes impossible, for how is it possible to fly, shun, or turn one's back in the midst of a court? The very attempt would give rise to remarks. Now, if you do not fly, there is nothing, it seems to me, so difficult as to escape from that which is essentially agreeable. All that can be said in opposition to it will appear but a prudery quite out of harmony with the natural instincts of the human heart; besides, no one holds his heart in his hand, tightening or relaxing his grasp of it at pleasure. <!-- Appleton &Co., 1850 p. 280

„Equality requires Institutions so well adapted, as to prevent the Rich from oppressing those who are not so wealthy as themselves“

—  Catherine the Great
Context: The Equality of the Citizens consists in this; that they should all be subject to the same Laws. This Equality requires Institutions so well adapted, as to prevent the Rich from oppressing those who are not so wealthy as themselves, and converting all the Charges and Employments intrusted to them as Magistrates only, to their own private Emolument.... <!-- Items 34 - 35

„The more a man knows, the more he forgives.“

—  Catherine the Great
Widely attributed to Catherine II online, this has been attributed to Confucius in published books, but no print sources attribute this to Catherine.

„I like to praise and reward loudly, to blame quietly.“

—  Catherine the Great
As quoted in The Historians' History of the World (1904) by Henry Smith Williams, p. 423 Variant: I praise loudly. I blame softly. As quoted in The Affairs of Women: A Modern Miscellany (2006) by Colin Bingham, p. 367
