  • Henry Kissinger may have wished I had presented him as a combination of Charles DeGaulle and Disraeli, but I didn't....out of respect for DeGaulle and Disraeli. I described him as a cowboy because that is how he describes himself. If I were a cowboy I would be offended.

All of them recently called for achievement of a nuclear weapon-free world.

He received the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in establishing relations between the U.S. and China.

It's a reminder of the wonder and terror that is a photograph.
