„Never have I had such great minds around me— Smuts, Balfour, Bonar Law... and Curzon. Curzon was perhaps not a great man, but he was a supreme Civil Servant. Compared to these men, the front benches of today are pigmies.“
— David Lloyd George Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom 1863 - 1945
