Le Duc Tho - Nobel Peace Prize

Nobel Peace Prize

Tho and Henry Kissinger were jointly awarded the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in negotiating the Paris Peace Accords. However, Thọ declined to accept the award, since there was still no peace agreement. The ceasefire would however not last, with the war ending when North Vietnam overran Saigon in 1975 and annexed South Vietnam.

Famous quotes containing the words prize, nobel and/or peace:

    The true runner comes to the finish and receives the prize and is crowned.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    Parents can fail to cheer your successes as wildly as you expected, pointing out that you are sharing your Nobel Prize with a couple of other people, or that your Oscar was for supporting actress, not really for a starring role. More subtly, they can cheer your successes too wildly, forcing you into the awkward realization that your achievement of merely graduating or getting the promotion did not warrant the fireworks and brass band.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)

    To many men ... the miasma of peace seems more suffocating than the bracing air of war.
    George Steiner (b. 1929)
