Bernard Baruch – Peace is never long preserved

Share this quote:
Bernard BaruchPeace is never long preserved by weight of metal or by an armament race. Peace can be made tranquil and secure only by understanding and agreement fortified by sanctions. We must embrace international cooperation or international disintegration. Science has taught us how to put the atom to work. But to make it work for good instead of for evil lies in the domain dealing with the principles of human dignity.

Bernard Baruch – Origin of the phrase “Cold War”

Share this quote:
Bernard BaruchAs the Soviets thwarted an atomic agreement, lowered their iron Curtain in Eastern Europe, and broke one promise after the other in those early postwar years, it became clear that they were waging war against us. It was a new kind of war, to be sure, in which the guns were silent; but our survival was at stake nonetheless. It was a situation that soon came to be known as the “cold war,” a phrase I introduced in a speech before the South Carolina legislature in April, 1947.

Bernard Baruch – Approach each new problem not with. . .

Share this quote:
Bernard BaruchApproach each new problem not with a view of finding what you hope will be there, but to get the truth, the realities that must be grappled with. You may not like what you find. In that case you are entitled to try to change it. But do not deceive yourself as to what you do find to be the facts of the situation.

Bernard Baruch – In the midst of a cold war

Share this quote:
Bernard BaruchLet us not be deceived — we are today in the midst of a cold war. Our enemies are to be
found abroad and at home. Let us never forget this: Our unrest is the heart of their success. The peace of the world is the hope and the goal of our political system; it is the despair and
defeat of those who stand against us.
