Diplomacy Quotations

In a world of complex threats, our security and leadership depends on all elements of our power - including strong and principled diplomacy.
Barack Obama

I would love to see no more ghettos, but the things is, there's no diplomacy in the ghetto. They want to tell you something, they tell you straight! An upper class, more educated person - they find a diplomatic way to tell you the thing. I love it when you just come heart to heart. That's the way I knew it coming up, so that's the way I like it.
Jimmy Cliff

To say nothing, especially when speaking, is half the art of diplomacy. - Will Durant
