Страница 207 - There is no other course open to us but to fight it out. Every position must be held to the last man : there must be no retirement.

Responsibility in such matters is single, not joint; absolute, not relative.
Страница 101 - I am proposing, as it were, that the nations should with one accord adopt the doctrine of President Monroe as the doctrine of the world : That no nation should seek to extend its policy over any other nation or people, but that every people should be left free to determine its own policy, its own way of development, unhindered, unthreatened, unafraid, the little along with the great and powerful.
Страница 285 - The Members of the League undertake to respect and preserve as against external aggression the territorial integrity and existing political independence of all Members of the League.
