Richard Cobden

The people of the two nations [French and English] must be brought into mutual dependence by the supply of each other’s wants. There is no other way of counteracting the antagonism of language and race. It is God’s own method of producing an entente cordiale, and no other plan is worth a farthing.

— Richard Cobden, Letter to M. Michel Chevalier [1859]
