“Take the diplomacy out of war and the thing would fall flat in a week.”
“Be polite; write diplomatically; even in a declaration of war one observes the rules of politeness.”
Otto von Bismarck
“All war represents a failure of diplomacy”
“Diplomacy is a disguised war, in which states seek to gain by barter and intrigue, by the cleverness of arts, the objectives which they would have to gain more clumsily by means of war.”
“Diplomats are just as essential to starting a war as soldiers are for finishing it... You take diplomacy out of war, and the thing would fall flat in a week.”
“[Modern diplomacy] is myopic, simplistic, based on violence and just going to lead to more war.”
“I am here to pursue diplomacy and mutual political efforts, ... The issue of war or hostilities is not on the table.”
