More From John le Carre
- "More particularly, having a largely German-oriented education has made me very responsive to 19th-century German literature."
- "Until we have a better relationship between private performance and the public truth, as was demonstrated with Watergate, we as the public are absolutely right to remain suspicious, contemptuous even, of the secrecy and the misinformation which is the digest of our news."
- "I worked for MI6 in the Sixties, during the great witch-hunts, when the shared paranoia of the Cold War gripped the services."
More In Experience
- "You might say that when you step inside, you’re entering a honorific space, but that’s something totally different than experiencing it. And in architecture the experience comes first. That has the deepest effect on us."― Thom Mayne
- "There can be no greater error than to expect, or calculate, upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard."― George Washington
- "Nothing happens quite by chance. It’s a question of accretion of information and experience."― Jonas Salk
