Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.

AUTHOR: Harold Macmillan (1894–1986)
QUOTATION: We do not intend to part from the Americans and we do not intend to be satellites. I am sure they do not want us to be so. The stronger we are, the better partners we shall be; and I feel certain that as the months pass we shall draw continually closer together with mutual confidence and respect.
ATTRIBUTION: Prime Minister HAROLD MACMILLAN, broadcast to the nation, London, January 17, 1957.—Vital Speeches of the Day, February 1, 1957, p. 247.
