AN IMPORTANT NOTICE WRITTEN BY USTINOV IN 2003


Prejudices are the starting point of many accumulating disasters in the world. At first as inocuous as land mines, to which they bear a certain resemblance when inactive, they become lethal when children toy with them.
Every human needs opinions to express. But they must be fresh, freely expressed,considered.
Beware stale opinions, dead opinions, inherited opinions, thoughtlessly adopt. When they turn into contagion, they can humilate entire nations.
Death is there to survive.
Humiliation can last for centuries.
Palestine is a flagrant example.

(Peter Ustinov, 8-12-03)

Another quote:

"Terrorism is the war of the poor, and, war is terrorism of the rich."
(Peter Ustinov)

«The older you are, the wiser you get»? Yes, but only a few get really wise, among them Peter Ustinov. What a gentleman! What a guy!
Thank you, Castor, for the excellent quotes!
