„The reason that university politics is so vicious is that the stakes are so small.“

— Henry Kissinger
This remark was first attributed to Kissinger, among others, in the 1970s. The Quote Verifier (2006) attributes it to political scientist Paul Sayre, but notes earlier similar remarks by Woodrow Wilson. Clyde J. Wingfield referred to it as a familiar joke in The American University (1970) Unattributed variants: Somebody once said that one of the reasons academic infighting is so vicious is that the stakes are so small. There's so little at stake and they are so nasty about it. The Craft of Crime : Conversations with Crime Writers (1983) by John C. Carr The reason that academic politics is so vicious is that the stakes are so small. Mentioned as an "old saw" in Teachers for Our Nation's Schools (1990) by John I. Goodlad

„This amazing, romantic character suits me precisely because to be alone has always been part of my style or, if you like, my technique.“

— Henry Kissinger
Context: I've always acted alone. Americans like that immensely. Americans like the cowboy who leads the wagon train by riding ahead alone on his horse, the cowboy who rides all alone into the town, the village, with his horse and nothing else. Maybe even without a pistol, since he doesn't shoot. He acts, that's all, by being in the right place at the right time. In short, a Western. … This amazing, romantic character suits me precisely because to be alone has always been part of my style or, if you like, my technique. Interview with Oriana Fallaci (November 1972), as quoted in [http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2006/12/hitchens200612 "Oriana Fallaci and the Art of the Interview" in Vanity Fair (December 2006)]; Kissinger, as quoted in [http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,916877,00.html "Special Section: Chagrined Cowboy" in TIME magazine (8 October 1979)] called this "without doubt the single most disastrous conversation I ever had with any member of the press" and claimed that he had probably been misquoted or quoted out of context, but Fallaci later produced the tapes of the interview.

„The superpowers often behave like two heavily armed blind men feeling their way around a room, each believing himself in mortal peril from the other, whom he assumes to have perfect vision.“

— Henry Kissinger
Context: The superpowers often behave like two heavily armed blind men feeling their way around a room, each believing himself in mortal peril from the other, whom he assumes to have perfect vision. Each side should know that frequently uncertainty, compromise, and incoherence are the essence of policymaking. Yet each tends to ascribe to the other a consistency, foresight, and coherence that its own experience belies. Of course, over time, even two armed blind men can do enormous damage to each other, not to speak of the room. The White House Years (1979)
