„I do not have regrets. I believe I helped preserve the peace for this country. Why should I regret that?“

—  Hyman George Rickover United States admiral 1900 - 1986

Thoughts on Man's Purpose in Life (1974)
Kontext: I do not have regrets. I believe I helped preserve the peace for this country. Why should I regret that? What I accomplished was approved by Congress — which represents our people. All of you live in safety from domestic enemies because of security from the police. Likewise, you live in safety from foreign enemies because our military keeps them from attacking us. Nuclear technology was already under development in other countries. My assigned responsibility was to develop our nuclear navy. I managed to accomplish this.
