I’m reading about the life and ideology of Hitler because suddenly I realized that I knew nothing about him. Meanwhile I’ve learned a bit of interesting things.
It’s pretty funny that several people think that this quote is real since it was created in a spoofing reedit forum. Interesting enough, the other day I searched about an Einstein quote and I ended in reedit too. So, if you found a suspect quote in reedit, you may wanna think it twice.
How I know? this is pretty easy, the quotes fake boom started in this decade, you only have to search in Google in a range from 2000 to 2010, the quote must be in quotation marks, of course.
If the quote is real then you can find it through books and scholar articles dating that years.
Else, then you need to find out where the fake quoted arose adding years to the range date search.
Here is the link where this fake quote arouse:
It’s a shame that there are links quoting this fake quote:
Now, beside knowing that a quote is fake, we should know what the real quote is supposed to be; or the more likely ones.
“I can fight only for something that I love. I can love only what I respect. And in order to respect a thing I must at least have some knowledge of it.”—Hitler
“The great protagonists are those who fight for their ideas and ideals despite the fact that they receive no recognition at the hands of their contemporaries. They are the men whose memories will be enshrined in the hearts of the future generations. It seems then as if each individual felt it his duty to make retroactive atonement for the wrong which great men have suffered at the hands of their contemporaries. Their lives and their work are then studied with touching and grateful admiration. Especially in dark days of distress, such men have the power of healing broken hearts and elevating the despairing spirit of a people.” —Hitler
The quotes which truthfully said what really Hitler though are that from his own book .
