We have lost a battle, but I assure to you that we will not lose the war! I cannot say more at the present moment although I know the losses are crowded in your minds. That this happened does not hold importance. What counts is not to lose confidence in the future of Germany. At the same time everyone must understand the gravity of the situation. This moment will be enough to distinguish the true men from the inept ones. Every soldier has the same responsibilities: if the advancing one falls, another must be ready to take his place in order to go on.

 
Walter Model
 

The truth seems to be that propaganda on its own cannot force its way into unwilling minds; neither can it inculcate something wholly new; nor can it keep people persuaded once they have ceased to believe. It penetrates only into minds already open, and rather than instill opinion it articulates and justifies opinions already present in the minds of its recipients. The gifted propagandist brings to a boil ideas and passions already simmering in the minds of his hearers. he echoes their innermost feelings. Where opinion is not coerced, people can be made to believe only in what they already "know."

 
Eric Hoffer
 

Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.

 
Hyman G. Rickover
 

Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.

 
Eleanor Roosevelt
 

People walkin' around everyday,
Playin' games and takin' scores.
Tryin' to make other people lose their minds.
Well be careful you don't lose yours.

 
Aretha Franklin
