The Dictator Speaks -- Hitler Quotes

• The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force.

• The leader of genius must have the ability to make different opponents appear as if they belonged to one category.

• True genius is always inborn and never cultivated, let alone learned.
