Quote of the Day (Peter Ustinov, on a Course in Diplomats’ Education)

“I'm convinced there's a small room in the attic of the Foreign Office where future diplomats are taught to stammer.”— British actor-director-writer Sir Peter Ustinov (1921-2004), as quoted in Israel Shenker, Words and Their Masters (1974)
