Notes and Reflections on Books and Media
by Hannah Leitheiser
"one does not die for business, but for ideals. ...While we fought for bread, England fought for 'liberty...
As long as in 1914 the German people was still able to fight for ideals, it resisted; but as soon as it was allowed to fight only for its daily bread, it preferred to give up the game. ..from the moment a man fights for an economic interest he tries to avoid death, as this would rob him forever of the enjoyment of the reward of his fighting." - Adolph Hitler
(Presumably the exception would be when you're starving and would die either way.)
