„If we don't stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we're going to have a serious problem coming down the road.“

—  George W. Bush 43rd President of the United States 1946

Quotation is from the October 3, 2000 Presidential debate with Al Gore, but is taken out of context. Bush was paraphrasing Colin Powell and Norman Schwarzkopf:
The other day, I was honored to be flanked by Colin Powell and General Norman Schwarzkopf, who stood by my side and agreed with me. They said we could, even though we're the strongest military, that if we don't do something quickly, we don't have a clearer vision of the military, if we don't stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we're going to have a serious problem coming down the road. And I'm going to prevent that. I'm going to rebuild our military power. It's one of the major priorities of my administration. http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2000/debates/transcripts/u221003.html

„Southeast Asia is the Bosnia of historical linguistics, with a lovely landscape strewn with land mines!“

—  Paul K. Benedict American anthropologist, mental health professional, and linguist 1912 - 1997

Kontext: Welcome to the field of Southeast Asian linguistics! This welcome comes with a warning: Southeast Asia is the Bosnia of historical linguistics, with a lovely landscape strewn with land mines! … 'Look-alikes' (look less and less alike the more we know about them) abound, as in Malay bĕras and Wr. Tibetan 'bras for 'rice', as do also unlikely-appearing cognate sets such as Thai pu 'grandfather' and Japanese o:i 'nephew'.
