„The K Foundation are interesting and lively, a good laugh and they mean it.“

—  Alan Moore English writer primarily known for his work in comic books 1953

De Abaitua interview (1998)
Kontext: The K Foundation are interesting and lively, a good laugh and they mean it. They are very dedicated to their irrational ideas, which I am wholeheartedly in favour of. …There is an underground again. Probably kill it stone dead to call it that. But I get the sense that there is an underground again, it’s not as self-conscious as it was in the Sixties.

„We should stop using the argument that if we build more factories here, we will have to buy two or three less F-16s. That's really not the case. First, it is needed to set the goals. Let's set the goal, and I'm certain that we will find resources for it. And if, there is no choice, and the question of the F-16 will stand opposed to human dignity, I will decide in favor of the human being, and not in favor of the F-16.“

—  Amir Peretz Israeli politician 1952

Original: (iw) צריך להפסיק עם הדיבורים שאם נבנה עוד מפעלים, נצטרך לקנות פחות שניים שלושה אף-16. זה ממש לא שם. צריך קודם כל לקבוע את היעדים. בוא נקבע מה היעד, אני בטוח שנמצא לזה מקורות. ואם, לא תהיה בררה, ושאלת האף-16 תעמוד מול ערך האדם, אני אכריע לטובת האדם, ולא לטובת האף-16
