27 May: Happy Birthday, Henry K!

Henry Alfred Kissinger,  the American diplomat and politician who served as the United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under the presidential administrations of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. was born in Germany on May 27, 1923

One of his statements, which has always struck me  for its honesty, is:

Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac” (The New York Times – October 1973)


J. W. Waterhouse – 1899
