Quotes by Joachim Fest  (?)

“The need to magnify themselves, to bestir themselves, is characteristic of all illegitimates.”
Joachim C. Fest, Hitler

“The problems of the moment must never place the principle in doubt.”
Joachim Fest

“Neither blindness nor ignorance corrupts people and governments. They soon realize where the path they have taken is leading them. But there is an impulse within them, favored by their natures and reinforced by their habits, which they do not resist; it continues to propel them forward as long as they have a remnant of strength. He who overcomes himself is divine. Most see their ruin before their eyes; but they go on into it.1 Leopold von Ranke”
Joachim Fest, Hitler
