„We did not think that Nasser wanted war.“

—  Yitzhak Rabin Israeli politician, statesman and general 1922 - 1995

As quoted in Le Monde (28 February 1968), when he was Chief of General Staff for Israel
Contexte: We did not think that Nasser wanted war. The two divisions he sent to Sinai on May 14 would not have been sufficient to launch an offensive against Israel. He knew it and we knew it.

„We did not get everything we wanted, no. The world is not perfect now, and is that why some of us think we accomplished nothing?“

—  Katharine Kerr American writer 1944

Contexte: Why do you think nothing concrete and lasting happened out of the 60s? Lots of people have been saying this lately, and I can't help feeling that the changes were so profound and total that no one remembers that there were changes! The 50s, my friends, happened in a different country than this one. We did not get everything we wanted, no. The world is not perfect now, and is that why some of us think we accomplished nothing? … Try to remember what life was like in the 50s. That's all I can say to that. It's the power structures that are trying to pretend that the change wasn't lasting, so they can convince people that protests and the like are futile now.
But they lie. I'm glad to see that many young people aren't buying it.
