Frasi Dean Acheson
„... old inhabitants of the bureaucratic jungle like (Secretary) Hull knew that Cabinet boards and committees were paper tigers. They made a fine show in a parade but soon dissolved in the rain... After attend a few meetings (of this board), the Secretary deputized me to 'explain his absence' and substitute for him.“
— Dean Acheson
Speech at West Point (5 December 1962), in Vital Speeches, January 1, 1963, page 163.
„When Acheson was first joined State as Assistant Secretary for Economic Affairs, he writes the following in a section entitled "My Search for a Function"..."My official duties were summed up in the Department of State Bulletin by misleading platitudes... Both (Secretary) Hull and the President... knew me and, surely, had not asked me into the Department to perform the largely nonexistent duties defined in the Bulletin."“
