Russian empress
(1729 - 1796)

      - [Gentleness]

I shall be an autocrat: that's my trade. And the good Lord will forgive me: that's his.
  [Fr., Moi, je serai autocrate: c'est mon metier. Et le bon Dieu me pardonnnera: c'est son metier.]
      - attributed to [God : Royalty]

Do sometimes sink with their own weights.
  [Lat., Votre espril en donne aux autres.]
      - Letter to Voltaire [Wit]
