“The test of the diplomat lies in his personal weapons—skill, ingenuity, and above all imagination. . . . But that other important quality in the diplomat’s armory—courage—cannot be and should not be lost. Relations among nations are built on sincerity, reliability, and responsibility for commitments. Once a country ignores this foundation, the seeds of anarchy are sown, and the human community as we know it is in mortal hazard.”

~ “A Dangerous Moment in History,” 1980
