„The UN is not just a product of do-gooders. It is harshly real.“

As quoted in The Times [London] (27 June 1955)
Kontext: The UN is not just a product of do-gooders. It is harshly real. The day will come when men will see the UN and what it means clearly. Everything will be all right — you know when? When people, just people, stop thinking of the United Nations as a weird Picasso abstraction, and see it as a drawing they made themselves.
