->Fascism and Nazism are psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life.... Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a more grudging way, have said to people "I offer you a good time," Hitler has said to them "I offer you struggle, danger and death," and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet.
-->--'''Creator/GeorgeOrwell'''

to:

->Fascism ->Hitler, because in his own joyless mind he feels it with exceptional strength, knows that human beings don’t only want comfort, safety, short working-hours, hygiene, birth-control and, in general, common sense; they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flags and loyalty-parades. However they may be as economic theories, Fascism and Nazism are psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life.... life. [...] Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a more grudging way, have said to people "I offer you a good time," Hitler has said to them "I offer you struggle, danger and death," and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet.

->On the contrary, no man has ever given less cause for forgiveness then Septimus Harding. He is not a hero, not a man that is widely talked about, not a man who should be toasted at public dinners, not a man who should be spoken of with conventional absurdity as "the perfect divine". He's simply a good man, without guile, believing humbly in the religion he has striven to teach, and guided by the precepts he has striven to learn. My friends, I give you our Mr. Harding.
-->--'''Archdeacon Grantly''', ''The Barchester Chronicles'' ("The Warden")

->You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with [[ARealManIsAKiller its meekness and flabbiness]]?
-->--'''UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler'''

->The great artists of the world are never Puritans, and seldom even ordinarily respectable. No virtuous man — that is, virtuous in the Y.M.C.A. sense — has ever painted a picture worth looking at, or written a symphony worth hearing, or a book worth reading.

->Bland works.
-->--Ontario Premier '''Bill Davis'''

->The truth of the matter is, when I first got the script, I said, 'Maniac's the most fun part'...[[TypeCasting Once again]], I'm the 'serious' guy, the man on a mission; An agenda that doesn't allow for humor, really.

->I never appreciated 'positive heroes' in literature. They are almost always [[FountainOfExpies cliches, copies of copies, until the model is exhausted]]. I prefer perplexity, doubt, uncertainty, not just because it provides a more 'productive' literary raw material, but because that is the [[HumansAreFlawed way we humans really are]].
-->-- '''Jose Saramago'''

->Due to the growing number of the live audiences booing [[Wrestling/JohnCena Cena]], Wrestling/KurtAngle began to [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain speak negatively about black people]] in an attempt to get Cena some cheers during their feud. Along with this he turned his back on the troops and refused to perform at ''Tribute to the Troops'', took Daivari (who was last seen with mega heel [[EvilForeigner Muhammad Hassan]]) as his manager, and said [[CardCarryingVillain he hated Jesus.]] (Daivari: "Who did he ever beat?") Kurt '''''still''''' got a considerable amount of cheers over Cena.
