United Nations Quotes


"If the United Nations once admits that international disputes can be settled by using force, then we will have destroyed the foundation of the organization and our best hope of establishing a world order." So said President Eisenhower in one of the most well known United Nations quotes of our times. Few would argue that the UN is a hot button politically; its worth tested and questioned time and time again since it was founded in 1945. Still, the UN soldiers on and United Nations quotes lead us to understand its ongoing role as the world's peacekeepers and international police force. Reference.com Definition of United Nations

When people, just people, stop thinking of the United Nations as a weird Picasso abstraction, and see it as a drawing they made themselves." Dag Hammarskjold
