John Dulles

He was a significant figure in the early Cold War era, advocating an aggressive stance against communism throughout the world.
Mankind will never win lasting peace so long as men use their full resources only in tasks of war. While we are yet at peace, let us mobilize the potentialities, particularly the moral and spiritual potentialities, which we usually reserve for war.More John Dulles quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year.More John Dulles quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Local defense will always be important. But there is no local defense which alone will contain the mighty land power of the Communist world. Local defense must be reinforced by the further deterrent of massive retaliatory power.More John Dulles quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You have to take chances for peace, just as you must take chances in war. Some say that we were brought to the verge of war. Of course we were brought to the verge of war. The ability to get to the verge without getting into the war is the necessary art... If you try to run away from it, if you are scared to go to the brink, you are lost. We've had to look it square in the face... We walked to the brink and we looked it in the face. We took strong action.More John Dulles quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Peace will never be won if men reserve for war their greatest efforts, Peace, too, requires well-directed and sustained sacrificial endeavor. Given that, we can, I believe, achieve the great goal of our foreign policy, that of enabling our people to enjoy in peace the blessings of liberty.More John Dulles quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
