Georges Clemenceau Quotes

How can I talk to a fellow (Woodrow Wilson) who thinks himself the first man in two thousand years to know anything about peace on earth?

America is the only nation in history which miraculously has gone directly from barbarianism to degeneration without the usual interval of civilization.

A man who waits to believe in action before acting is anything you like, but he’s not a man of action. It is as if a tennis player before returning a ball stopped to think about his views of the physical and mental advantages of tennis. You must act as you breathe.

When a man asks himself what is meant by action he proves that he isn’t a man of action. Action is a lack of balance. In order to act you must be somewhat insane. A reasonably sensible man is satisfied with thinking.
