My first day in Bible college I learned a valuable lesson that applies to all quotes and not just to the Bible.
When you are searching for the meaning of a quote it is advisable to know the date , to whom it was quoted and what the political or societal satiation was at the time the speaker made the quote.
It is much easier to make an accurate assumption of what the quote implies when you follow this protocol.

For me, those considered the most credible testimonies should always come from people in high places of power and influence.
There is always a lot interest when one of these high profile personalities comes forward with words of warning or advice.
And so there should be, after all, they should know.
Why then don't we listen?
Preaching to the choir, i know, but when trying to convince anyone of anything, you should always use these high profile sources first.
'Billy nobody said this!'
And i would agree to an extent.
'John F. Kennedy said this!'
'......really? Hmm, interesting!'
So, with this thread i hope to bring together a selection of quotes, dialogue, video etc...of such high quality testimonies.
Here are some i found with a quick search, im sure you guys/gals will out do me......
"The Good Guys"
It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our earth for centuries. I think that they possibly have been sent out to conduct systematic, long-range investigations, fir of men, animals, vegetation and more recently of atomic centers, armaments and centers of armament production.
-- Hermann Oberth
We cannot take credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone. We have been helped." When asked by whom, he replied, "the peoples of other worlds.
-- Hermann Oberth
"We find ourselves faced by powers, which are far stronger than we had hitherto assumed, and whose base is at present unknown to us. More I cannot say at present. We are now engaged in entering into closer contact with those powers, and in six or nine months it may be possible to speak with some precision on the matter."
--Wernher von Braun
"There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy,its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself."
— Senator Daniel Inouye at the Iran Contra Hearings
"A great industrial nation is controlled by it's system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world-- no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men."
-- President Woodrow Wilson
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs."
-- President Thomas Jefferson
"The Bad Guys"
"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws."
-- Mayer Amschel Rothschild
"The Rothschilds can start or prevent wars. Their word could make or break empires."
-- Chicago Evening American
"The way to make money is to buy when blood is running in the streets."
-- John D. Rockefeller
Please add your own examples and give your own thoughts on the issue.
I did have more examples from "The Bad Guys" but they have disappeared somewhere
