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

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie' until you can find a rock.
Will Rogers

We always have hoped that American diplomacy deploys itself in dialogue and persuasion rather than by ultimatums. That is the path we want in international relations.
Mahmoud Abbas

Diplomacy in a sense is the opposite of writing. You have to disperse yourself so much: the lady who comes in crying because she's had a fight with the secretary; exports and imports; students in trouble; thumbtacks for the embassy.
Carlos Fuentes

My career was always about working with people, and understanding issues and problems and helping them to solve those issues and problems. How you deal with people - that's what diplomacy is all about. So while I'm not a career diplomat, many of the skills I had seemed to directly translate into the diplomatic arena.
John Roos
