By Adolf Hitler
Be like a wolf. Wild. Free. Hungry.
Even a lone wolf is full of hope and freedom.
Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage’s whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.
We are all born free and spend a lifetime becoming slaves to our own false truths.
Our nuclear weapons are meant purely as a deterrent against nuclear adventure by an adversary.
It requires an effort of logical acrobatics to believe that carnage of innocents is an instrument for freedom and elections are a symbol of deception and repression!
I am often accused of colluding with the British during the freedom struggle. I want to ask, how?
Will power is to the mind like a strong blind man who carries on his shoulders a lame man who can see.
A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.
For my part, I wish all guns with their belongings and everything could be sent to hell, which is the proper place for their exhibition and use.
Tears and complaints – the means which I have called water power – can be an extremely useful weapon for disturbing cooperation and reducing other to a condition of slavery.
What is courage? Courage is the willingness to risk failure…There is only one danger I find in life, and that, indeed, is a real one. You may take too many precautions.
The truth is often a terrible weapon of aggression. It is possible to lie, and even to murder, with the truth.
Every therapeutic cure, and still more, any awkward attempt to show the patient the truth, tears him from the cradle of his freedom from responsibility and must therefore reckon with the most vehement resistance.
Liberties aren’t given, they are taken.
A man may be a pessimistic determinist before lunch and an optimistic believer in the will’s freedom after it.
The worst enemy of life, freedom and the common decencies is total anarchy; their second worst enemy is total efficiency.
But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.
Through discipline comes freedom.
In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gentle spirit.
