Quote of the Day

Quotes from British Prime Minister Tony Blair's Speech to the General Assembly at the 2005 UN World Summit

"The modern world insists we are dependent on each other. We work with each other or we suffer in isolation."

later in the same speech

"Failed states, as we know to our cost, fail us all. The protection of the environment, the promotion of international trade: we can do nothing without effective action together.

And when we look with revulsion, as we should, at the misery of the millions who die in Africa and elsewhere through preventable famine, disease and conflict, the urgency to act is driven not just by conscience but by an inner sense that one day, if we refuse to act, we will reap a dire reward from our refusal."
