“Sleepless tact, immovable calmness and patience that no folly, no provocation, no blunder can shake.” — Lord Salisbury (1830-1903), aka Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury, British Prime Minister (the last to run Britain from the House of Lords).

Quoted by journalist Alan Philps in a column about US’s declining involvement in the Middle East. It starts with a great summary of US involvement in the Middle East.
