"What I get most from presenting at these Carnegie breakfasts is the questions, the challenges, the new points, the things I or my co-authors have missed."
—Paul Kennedy, Yale University historian
"I welcome this opportunity to meet people who come to the Carnegie Council because they enjoy thinking about issues, grappling with things that matter..."
—Shashi Tharoor, author and former UN official
"I urge all of you in the audience to continue to support the Carnegie Council. You can't imagine the force, the moral power, of private organizations like this, especially now that the United States is formulating a whole new foreign policy."
—The late Father Robert Drinan, author, Congressman, and law professor
