I've also found, oddly enough, that many Aikido students are actually interested in what the Founder of their art had to say.
Unfortunately, there are very few works in English that offer anything like a coherent body of the Founder's views. (And many kudos to you for helping to fill that gap.) There are lots of sentence- or paragraph-length quotations, but they are, as Mary said, quite often yanked out of context and used as weapons to advance this or that modern agenda.
