Sir Peter Alexander Ustinov világszerte elismert angol színész, producer, rendező, regényíró és színpadi szerző. Ustinov több könyvet, színdarabot, forgatókönyvet írt, rendezett filmeket, színdarabokat és operákat. Több díjat nyert, köztük két Oscart, egy Emmy-díjat, és a Nagy Britannia-i Írók Szövetségének díját. Szívesen látott vendég volt számos műsorban és kedvelt volt műsorvezetőként is.

„Az öröklött vélemény – vagyis az előítélet – magának a véleménynek a tagadása. Azok számára van fenntartva, akik képtelenek vagy nem hajlandók élvezni az ész nagy elsőszülöttségi jogának előnyeit. Az előítélet azoké, akik túl gyávák, mégis túl energikusak, s bármire képesek, de csak másokkal együttesen. Egy közönséges futballmeccs lármája megadja nekik azt a bátorságot, aminek egyedül híjával vannak. Az ő fizikai erőfitogtatásuk oly fenyegető, amilyenek céljaik: csüggesztő és üres.”

Idézetek Peter Ustinov

„A nevetés megszállottja vagyok… Véleményem szerint ez a legcivilizáltabb zene, amely csak létezik.“

—  Peter Ustinov

I was irrevocably betrothed to laughter, the sound of which has always seemed to me to be the most civilized music in the world.

„A komédia egy vicces módja a komolyságnak.“

—  Peter Ustinov

Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.

„A feladatot, nem pedig magunkat kell komolyan venni.“

—  Peter Ustinov

It is our responsibilities, not ourselves, that we should take seriously.

„The only one who's always punctual is Death“

—  Peter Ustinov, Romanoff and Juliet

Act I
Romanoff and Juliet (1956)
Kontextus: The only one who's always punctual is Death … whatever the time he always strikes his knell at the first streak of dawn … and believe me, he knows what he's doing. How I hate the dawn! It's the hour of the firing squad. The last glass of brandy. The ultimate cigarette. The final wish. All the hideously calculated hypocrisy of men when they commit a murder in the name of justice. Then it's the time of death on a grander scale, the hour of the great offenses … fix your bayonets boys …gentlemen, synchronize your watches … in ten seconds time the barrage starts … a thousand men are destined to die in order to capture a farmhouse no one has lived in for years... And finally dawn is the herald of the day, our twelve hours of unimportance, when we have to cede to the pressures of the powers, smile at people we have every reason but expediency to detest … A diplomat these days is nothing but a head-waiter who's allowed to sit down occasionally.

„They need enemies, not friends, to focus their two-dimensional ideas. Life for them is a simple tune, never an orchestration, or even a pleasant harmony.“

—  Peter Ustinov

On Serbian war aims and human rights abuses during the post-Yugoslavian conlicts, and especially the Bosnian War, as quoted in (10 June 1993)
Kontextus: It is unfortunate for all that no moral issue has ever been clearer. Any attempt to plea-bargain with outlaws and renegades will only be at the expense of honor, decency and self-respect. The Serbs, are two-dimensional people with a craving for simplicity and an ideology so basic it can be understood without effort. They need enemies, not friends, to focus their two-dimensional ideas. Life for them is a simple tune, never an orchestration, or even a pleasant harmony. Animals make use of their resources with far greater felicity than these retorted creatures, whose subscription to the human race is well in arrears.

„I like everything about it except the flavor.“

Bill Budd, on the ship's gruel.
Billy Budd (1962)
Kontextus: It's hot. And there's a lot of it. I like everything about it except the flavor.

„We have fought two wars to end war. In 1976, the nations of this world set aside the same amount of money for its starving children as the lavished on armaments every two hours.“

—  Peter Ustinov, könyv Dear Me

Dear Me (1977)
Kontextus: We have fought two wars to end war. In 1976, the nations of this world set aside the same amount of money for its starving children as the lavished on armaments every two hours. Can any right-minded man afford to be a pessimist? That was a luxury for easier days. <!-- p. 167
