Famous quotes containing the words germans and/or east:

    I think that both here and in England there are two schools of thought—those who would be altruistic in regard to the Germans, hoping that by loving kindness to make them Christian again—and those who would adopt a much tougher attitude. Most decidedly I belong to the latter school, for though I am not blood-thirsty, I want the Germans to know that this time at least they have definitely lost the war.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    From the east to western Inde,
    No jewel is like Rosalind.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
