Unusual Quotations: The Difficultly Of Behaving Wisely.
“History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives.” —Abba Eban, Israel’s Foreign Minister, in 1970
I love this quotation. It is abundantly true. Evidence of its truth is everywhere
And this is a great quotation to use in a speech. It lends itself to dramatic effect if you pause just before saying what in effect is a punch line. (“once they have exhausted…all other alternatives.”).
Abba Eban was one of the greatest orators I have ever heard. His speeches before the UN are classics.
