Dwight D. Eisenhower
"For one truth must rule all we think and all we do. No people can live to itself alone. The unity of all who dwell in freedom is their only sure defense. The economic need of all nations in mutual dependence makes isolation an impossibility; not even America's prosperity could long survive if other nations did not also prosper.
No nation can longer be a fortress, lone and strong and safe. And any people, seeking such shelter for themselves, can now build only their own prison."
-From his second inaugural address, Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961)
