Shorter than Tolstoy!

Everyone has heard the expression “Make Love, Not War” but few know how it originated.

It seems that the adage lost something in the original translation from Russian.

In 1812 when Napoleon’s Army retreated from Russia, a Russian General was caught by his wife in the bed a beautiful French courtesan.

He pleaded that his wife should forgive him by saying, “Making this whore is not love.”

His wife shot him.
