„Ukrainian army soldiers are being killed in Donbas. It’s horrible. When I think about this, it makes a very strong impression on me. Because I consider all of them to be ours.“

„I have given instructions that I be informed every time one of our soldiers is killed, even if it is in the middle of the night. When President Nasser leaves instructions that he is to be awakened in the middle of the night if an Egyptian soldier is killed, there will be peace.“

„It makes me very sad when I find out that people who never hear our music think that we are really about image and not about substance.“

—  Amanda Palmer American punk-cabaret musician 1976

As quoted in "Getting Real With Amanda Palmer" at AfterEllen (18 July 2007) http://archive.is/20120728142340/http://www.afterellen.com/people/2007/7/amandapalmer?page=0,0
Context: It makes me very sad when I find out that people who never hear our music think that we are really about image and not about substance. … I can understand why you might get that impression if you've never heard the band's music and see a photo of a guy and a girl dressed up in crazy costumes and think, "I don't need to pay attention to that — why do they need to wear those crazy clothes?" I think that's why we've constantly toured. Our live show is so intense and so substantive and emotional that it's sort of the price we have to pay for being so flamboyant — we have to prove ourselves as a rock band.

„As a former soldier, what struck me is the absolutely heartless way that war was being pursued by the Americans, partly I think because of the race problem.“

—  Paul Fussell Recipient of the Purple Heart medal 1924 - 2012

Humanities interview (1996)
Context: As a former soldier, what struck me is the absolutely heartless way that war was being pursued by the Americans, partly I think because of the race problem. The Vietnamese to us were not merely communists, they were nasty little yellow people without souls. It didn't matter how we blew them up or how we bombed them or how we burned their villages and so on. I was very struck by that. And one thing I was trying to do in The Great War and Modern Memory was to awaken a sort of civilian sympathy for the people who suffer on the ground in wartime, and that's really an act that I've been performing, oh, ever since 1945, I suppose.
