A leader who doesn't hesitate before he sends his nation into battle is not fit to be a leader.

I don't know why you use a fancy French word like detente when there's a good English phrase for it - cold war.

Don't be humble... you're not that great.

It is true we have won all our wars, but we have paid for them. We don't want victories anymore.

It's no accident many accuse me of conducting public affairs with my heart instead of my head. Well, what if I do? Those who don't know how to weep with their whole heart don't know how to laugh either.

As President Nixon says, presidents can do almost anything, and President Nixon has done many things that nobody would have thought of doing.

The dog that trots about finds a bone.

There's no difference between one's killing and making decisions that will send others to kill. It's exactly the same thing, or even worse.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

We don't thrive on military acts. We do them because we have to, and thank God we are efficient.

You'll never find a better sparring partner than adversity.

She gained a reputation as a good organiser and someone who got things done. When Israel got its independence in May 1948, Golda Meir was appointed Israeli ambassador to the Soviet Union. In 1949, she was appointed Minister of Labour a post she held until 1956. In 1956, she was promoted to Foreign Minister. In the mid-1950s, it was very unusual for a woman anywhere in the world to advance very far in the male-dominated arena of politics. To be appointed to one of the most important posts in the Knesset was a testimony to how high Golda Meir was held in Israeli politics.
