“Only the Jew knew that by an able and persistent use of propaganda heaven itself can be presented to the people as if it were hell and, vice versa, the most miserable kind of life can be presented as if it were paradise. The Jew knew this and acted accordingly. But the German, or rather his Government, did not have the slightest suspicion of it. During the War the heaviest of penalties had to be paid for that ignorance.
-- Mein Kampf, Chapter 10”
“Reading is not an end to itself, but a means to an end.”
“لقد كان في وسعي أن أقضي على كل يهود العالم ولكني تركت بعضا منهم لتعرفوا لماذا كنت أبيدهم”
“The art of reading consists in remembering the essentials and forgetting non essentials.”
“The only preventative measure one can take is to live irregularly.”
“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”
“The frailest woman will become a heroine when the life of her own child is at stake. And only the will to save the race and native land or the State, which offers protection to the race, has in all ages been the urge which has forced men to face the weapons of their enemies.”
“Obstacles do not exist to be surrendered to, but only to be broken.”
“He who would live must fight. He who doesn't wish to fight in this world, where permanent struggle is the law of life, has not the right to exist.”
“لقد اكتشفت مع الأيام أنه ما من فعلٍ مغايرٍ للأخلاق, وما من جريمة بحق المجتمع إلا ولليهود يداً فيها”
“While the Zionists try to make the rest of the World believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim. It doesn't even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organisation for their international world swindler, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.
It is a sign of their rising confidence and sense of security that at a time when one section is still playing the German, French-man, or Englishman, the other with open effrontery comes out as the Jewish race.”
“إن لم تكن تعلم أين تذهب فكل الطرق تفي بالغرض .”
“Be proud of your people when you don't have to be ashamed of any of its social classes.”
“إنّ الانسان لايُناضل إلا من أجل مايُحِبّ، ولايُحِبّ إلا ماهو حريٌّ بالتقدير والاحترام، فكيف يُطلب من مواطن أن يُحبّ وطنه ويُقدّرُه وهو يجهل تاريخه ولايشعر في قرارة نفسه بأنّه ينعم بما تُؤمّنُه الدول الأخرى لرعاياها من أمن ورفاهية.”
“The scream of the twelve-inch shrapnel is more penetrating than the hiss from a thousand Jewish newspaper vipers. Therefore let them go on with their hissing.”
“I am firmly convinced to-day that, generally speaking, it is in youth that men lay the essential groundwork of their creative thought, wherever that creative thought exists. I make a distinction between the wisdom of age- which can only arise from the greater profundity and foresight that are based on the experiences of a long life- and the creative genius of youth, which blossoms out in thoughts and ideas with inexhaustible fertility, without being able to put these into practice immediately, because of their very superabundance. These furnish the building materials and plans for the future; and it is from them that age takes the stones and builds the edifice, unless the so-called wisdom of the years may have smothered the creative genius of youth.”
“Industry, technology, and commerce can thrive only as long as an idealistic national community offers the necessary preconditions. And these do not lie in material egoism, but in a spirit of sacrifice and joyful renunciation.”
“There are certain truths which stand out so openly on the roadsides of life, as it were, that every passer-by may see them. Yet, because of their obviousness, the general run of people disregard such truths or at least they do not make them the object of any concious knowledge. People are so bliend to some of the simplest facts in everyday life that they are highly surprised when somebody calls attention to what everybody ought to know.”
“ليسَ العُمّال بمسؤولين عمّا تُعانيه البلاد من مشاكل، فالمسؤولون هم أولئك الذين لم يُحمّلوا أنفسهم عناء الاهتمام بحالة الشعب والعمل على إنصافه ووضع حَدّ لتضليل المُضللين وفساد الفاسدين.”
“I know that fewer people are won over by the written word than by the spoken word and that every great movement on this earth owes its growth to great speakers and not to great writers.”
“The application of force alone, without support based on a spiritual concept, can never bring about the destruction of an idea or arrest the propagation of it, unless one is ready and able to ruthlessly to exterminate the last upholders of that idea even to a man, and also wipe out any tradition which it may tend to leave behind.”
“Any philosophy, whether of a religious or political nature - and sometimes the dividing line is hard to determine - fights less for the negative destruction of the opposing ideology than for the positive promotion of its own. Hence its struggle is less defensive than offensive. It therefore has the advantage even in determining the goal, since this goal represents the victory of its own idea, while, conversely,it is hard to determine when the negative aim of the destruction of a hostile doctrine may be regarded as achieved and assured. For this reason alone, the philosophy's offensive will be more systematic and also more powerful than the defensive against a philosophy, since here, too, as always, the attack and not the defence makes the decision. The fight against a spiritual power with methods of violence remains defensive, however, until the sword becomes the support,the herald and disseminator, of a new spiritual doctrine.”
“أليس من سخرية القدر أن يفصل الجهلة فى القضايا السياسية الخطيرة مثلا لتضيع اراء الصفوة فى زحمة الثرثرة والصراخ ؟. أليس من العار أن تترك مقدرات أمة تحت رحمة مواطنين يتصرفون بهذه المقدرات بخفة ومجون كما لو كانو يلعبون الورق؟؟؟”
“الفقر هو صنو الجهل وصنو المرض , ومتى اجتمع الثلاثة كفر الشعب بالدولة ومات فى النفوس كل شعور وطنى.”
“ان رجلا يتهرب من تحمل مسؤولية عمل ويبحث دائما عمن يغطيه ليس له من الرجولة أكثر من الأسم , انه جبان . بل حقير . والأمة التى يكون زعمائها من هذا الطراز لا تلبس أن تعانى أوخم النتائج.”
“ما نسميه " الرأى العام " لا يرتكز دائما على الخبرة الشخصية ومعرفة الأفراد معرفة حقيقية , فهو فى الغالب خاضع لتأثير الدعاوة التى توجه يوما فيوما وتنفث سمومها فى دمه دون أن يشعر . ان الصحافة هى التى تتولى تنشئة الجمهور سياسيا بما تنشر من أخبار وتبث من اراء.”
“The Strong Man is Mightiest Alone.”
“ان تحويل الشعب الى أمة خلاقة يفترض قيام وسط اجتماعى سليم يعمل على تنشئة المواطن تنشئة وطنية .., فليس يستشعر الاعتزاز بالانتماء الى بلد ما الا من يتعلم فى البيت والمدرسة حب الوطن ويقدر أمجاده فى ميادين الفكر والسياسة والاقتصاد . ان الانسان لا يناضل الا من أجل ما يحب , ولا يحب الا ما هو حرى بالتقدير والاحترام”
“أليس من العار أن تترك مقدرات أمّة تحت رحمة مواطنين يتصرفون بهذه المقدرات بخفّة و مجون كما لو كانوا يلعبون الورق ..”
“لا يحق لدولة أن تفرض احترامها على الشعب عندما تعبث بالمصالح العامة وتتعمد الحاق الأذى بهذا الشعب . و أن سلطة الدولة لا يمكن أن تكون غاية بحد ذاتها , والا كان كل طغيان مكرسا ومقدسا . وعندما تقود الحكومة الشعب الى الخراب بشتى الوسائل والامكانيات يصبح عصيان كل فرد من أفراد الشعب حقا من حقوقه, بل واجبا وطنيا .”
“Rachel squeezed her eyes shut and took two deep breaths in and out before opening them again. But she wouldn’t look at me. “Rachel?” “What?” she snapped. Shield. “Are you feeling okay, do you need something to eat or drink? I don’t have anything here but I can go get something.” “I’m fine.” She took one more deep breath and forced her eyes to my face. “Tell me why you thought that’s why Mason would have me come over here.” “It’s just something we were talking about.” “You were talking about having sex with me?!” “No! Jesus, no. We just—” I groaned and shifted my weight. “He was going over there to be with Candice and told me I needed to get laid. That’s all. Then you showed up saying what you said . . . and I just thought . . . It doesn’t matter.” “Okay. Look, can we get out of your apartment? I’ll go help you pick out furniture or whatever. I just don’t feel comfortable being in here with you right now.” Her chest started rising and falling quickly and I just stood there staring at her. I was scaring her? She was scared of me! That was fucking awesome. I couldn’t think about anything but getting to know her in every damn way possible, and I was freaking scaring her. Perfect. “Yeah, let’s go.” We”
“Pleasure, pleasure, pleasure! Always your goal is pleasure. Pain, yes of course! Yet pain must only be used as a means to add to your sub's sensation of pleasure. To do otherwise is un péché noir - a black sin. Such will tarnish the soul.
“I hum while I work, like one of Snow White’s dwarfs, only I’d be called Stabby.”
“She wants to know why she can’t hear you,” Rue explains. “I told her your voice has been lost, so she’s keeping your hand until it comes back.”
“You are everything that is, your thoughts, your life, your dreams come true. You are everything you choose to be. You are as unlimited as the endless universe.”
BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.
We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.
Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
