Pierre Bezukhov: I want to discover... everything! I want to discover why I know what's right and still do what's wrong. I want to discover what happiness is, and what value there is in suffering. I want to discover why men go to war, and what they really say deep in their hearts when they pray. I want to discover what men and women feel when they say they love.

Nicholas Rostov: Natasha, you know, there's one awful thing about you.
Natasha Rostov: Tell it to me! Tell me the whole truth.
Nicholas Rostov: No girl I'll ever meet will ever be able to amuse me as much as you do.
Natasha Rostov: Shh... Don't talk like that.
