    This quote, “It is my great desire to reform my subjects, and yet I am ashamed to confess that I am unable to reform myself,” from Peter the Great, shows the sophistication he possessed, and also reflects the attention that he gave to Russia in order to reform it into a better society. Obviously, since he was called Peter “the Great,” he must have influenced history. This is shown through the fact that he was mainly successful in completely overhauling Russia and its economy, government, and…
