    This is peace with dignity. This is peace with commitment. This is our gift to our peoples and the generations to come.... It will be real, as we open our hearts and minds to each other.
    —Bin Talal Hussein (b. 1935)

    When Prince William [later King William IV] was at Cork in 1787, an old officer ... dined with him, and happened to say he had been forty years in the service. The Prince with a sneer asked what he had learnt in those forty years. The old gentleman justly offended, said, “Sir, I have learnt, when I am no longer fit to fight, to make as good a retreat as I can” —and walked out of the room.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)
