  • We have more nuclear warheads than the Russians, and I consider this to be the most important measure of relative strength. In addition, as Dr. Kissinger stressed many years ago, at the present level of strategic armaments superiority in numbers or megatons has no meaning.
  • You should look at all the experimental information at hand, not only the most relevant, and be prepared to make conjectures if that helps.
    • as quoted by Edwin E. Salpeter in My Sixty Years with Hans Bethe, in an edition by Gerald Edward Brown, Chang-Hwan Lee (2006). Hans Bethe and his physics. World Scientific. p. 119–120. ISBN 9812566090.
