Looking for specific quote by Charles de Gaulle on the alliance
December 11, 2012 9:46 AM Subscribe
My boss (I work in Tokyo for an independent think tank) has asked me to track down a particular quote for him by Charles de Gaulle, the leader of the Free French Forces and first president of the French Fifth Republic. Specifically, he is looking for a quote in which de Gaulle says something about the alliance not sharing a common destiny... I've been looking like crazy but have yet to find anything along these lines? Any ideas??

I tried sending my boss the following quote in the hopes of it being what he was looking for:
"No nation has friends, only interests."
However, he said that this was not quite it, and reiterated to me that the key word is "alliance".
Please help!! I really want to come through on this but am drawing a blank at this point!
