Tact and Diplomacy Quotes and Quotations


A timid question will always receive a confident answer.
"Let us agree not to step on each other's feet," said the cock to the horse.
If a person has no delicacy, he has you in his power.
Tact is the intelligence of the heart.
Silence is not always tact, and it is tact that is golden, not silence.
Diplomats are useful only in fair weather. As soon as it rains, they drown in every drop.
A distinguished diplomat could hold his tongue in ten languages.

Diplomacy; the art of saying 'nice doggie' till you can find a rock.
If any pilgrim monk come from distant parts, with wish as a guest to dwell in the monastery, and will be content with the customs which he finds in the place, and does not perchance by his lavishness disturb the monastery, but is simply content with what he finds, he shall be received for as long as he desires. If, indeed, he find fault with anything, or expose it, reasonably, and with the humility of charity, the Abbott shall discuss it prudently lest perchance God had sent him for this very thing. But, if he have been found gossipy and contumacious in the time of his sojourn as guest, not only ought he not be joined to the body of the monastery, but also, it shall be said to him, honestly, that he must depart. If he does not go, let two stout monks, in the name of God, explain the matter to him.
An ambassador is an honest man sent to lie abroad for the good of his country.
