"The people make foreign policy in a democracy, and they make it out of their ignorance or out of their understanding. Only out of people's understanding can the world be organized for peace." p.226

"Peace is a dramatic idea. It is positive and does not mean merely not going to war. The cause of peace is the world's greatest drama."

"The tragedy is that thinking men, so-called intellectuals, seem to threaten the electorate. We have in this country an anti-intellectual strain that scares the bejesus out of me. Don't we want a bright man? Don't we want a creative man? Must we always have these hacks?" p. 281
