Henry A. Kissinger
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Richard M. Nixon
During a negotiation, it would be wise not to take anything personally. If you leave personalities out of it, you will be able to see opportunities more objectively.
There's no road map on how to raise a family: it's always an enormous negotiation.
You can only end a negotiation for peace if you begin it.
Negotiation is not a policy. It's a technique. It's something you use when it's to your advantage, and something that you don't use when it's not to your advantage.
The most difficult thing in any negotiation, almost, is making sure that you strip it of the emotion and deal with the facts. And there was a considerable challenge to that here and understandably so.
Everything is negotiable. Whether or not the negotiation is easy is another thing.
Negotiation in the classic diplomatic sense assumes parties more anxious to agree than to disagree.

Police in China can do whatever they want; after 81 days in arbitrary detention you clearly realise that they don't have to obey their own laws. In a society like this there is no negotiation, no discussion, except to tell you that power can crush you any time they want - not only you, your whole family and all people like you.

If you come to a negotiation table saying you have the final truth, that you know nothing but the truth and that is final, you will get nothing.
However, even during the preparations for action, we laid our plans in such a manner that should there be progress through diplomatic negotiation, we would be well prepared to cancel operations at the latest moment that communication technology would have permitted.
There is no possible negotiation with these killers. Our aim is to win over terrorism. Only by being firm we can stop terrorism. We must be firm fighting the terrorists and opposing the final aims they want to achieve.
Jose Maria Aznar
World War I was not inevitable, as many historians say. It could have been avoided, and it was a diplomatically botched negotiation.

The negotiation of city space has been made more difficult with the idea that redevelopment is an improvement for some vague future - but it's never like that, is it?
