Quotes: War of the Austrian Succession
I must hold the country and the soil and for this all my armies, all the Hungarians, shall die before I surrender an inch of it...You will say that I am cruel; that is true. But I know that all the cruelties I commit today to hold the country I shall one day be in a position to repay a hundred full, and this I shall do. But for the present I close my heart to pity, I rely on you...
Moriamur pro nostro Rege, Maria Theresa!note 
—The Hungarian nobles, upon hearing the above.
