We have actively sought and are actively seeking to make the United Nations an effective instrument of international cooperation.

Dean Acheson
More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that, my friends, is why we have the United Nations.

Kofi Annan

The United Nations, whose membership comprises almost all the states in the world, is founded on the principle of the equal worth of every human being.

Kofi Annan

The global work of the United Nations is not without reason compared to that of a family -- striving for a common goal in concert with all members for a better future.

Kofi Annan

I believe that our world needs an instrument of global action as never before in history. I believe that the United Nations is the instrument for securing peace and for giving people everywhere, in poorer countries as in richer, a real stake in that peace by promoting development and encouraging cooperation. But the United Nations is only an instrument, an actor in need of props and cues from its directors, And so I will paraphrase Winston Churchill: Give us the tools—the trust, the authority and the means—and we will do the job.

Kofi Annan

What matters is the people. We must ensure that the United Nations is supported by the people and that it reflects the will of the people.
