„Those who do not recognize fundamental divides, however, are doomed to be frustrated by them.“

—  Samuel P. Huntington, Context: Although Europeans universally acknowledge the fundamental significance of the dividing line between Western Christendom, on the one hand, and Orthodoxy and Islam, on the other, the United States, its secretary of state said, would "not recognize any fundamental divide among the Catholic, Orthodox, and Islamic parts of Europe." Those who do not recognize fundamental divides, however, are doomed to be frustrated by them. Ch. 12 : The West, Civilizations, and Civilization, § 2 : The West In The World, p. 309
