"The Seven Years' War" - The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, Esq. - Williams Makepeace Thackery

This quote was added by user52434
It would require a greater philosopher and historian than I am to explain the causes of the famous Seven Years' War in which Europe was engaged; and, indeed, its origin has always appeared to me to be so complicated, and the books written about it so amazingly hard to understand, that I have seldom been much wiser at the end of a chapter than at the beginning, and so shall not trouble my reader with any personal disquisitions on the matter.
