Diplomacy -- of a sort

"Speak softly and carry a big stick."*


* I remember my father using this expression, but he said "Walk softly and carry a big stick" which I've read was a common corruption of the expression.  It was interesting to read the origin of the expression.  You can click on the words above to go to a Wikipedia article, if you're interested.
