Famous quotes containing the word alliances:

    An alliance is like a chain. It is not made stronger by adding weak links to it. A great power like the United States gains no advantage and it loses prestige by offering, indeed peddling, its alliances to all and sundry. An alliance should be hard diplomatic currency, valuable and hard to get, and not inflationary paper from the mimeograph machine in the State Department.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)

    ’Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.
    George Washington (1732–1799)

    Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
