„Солдатом надо быть во имя отчизны или из любви к делу, за которое идешь в бой. Без цели служить сегодня здесь, а завтра там — значит быть подручным мясника, не более.“

—  Готхольд Эфраим Лессинг

Вариант: Солдатом надо быть во имя отчизны или из любви к делу, за которое идешь в бой. Без цели служить сегодня здесь, а завтра там — значит быть подручным мясника, не более.

„The true value of a man is not determined by his possession, supposed or real, of Truth, but rather by his sincere exertion to get to the Truth.“

—  Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

Anti-Goeze (1778), as quoted in God Is Not Great (2007), by Christopher Hitchens , Ch. 19
Контексте: The true value of a man is not determined by his possession, supposed or real, of Truth, but rather by his sincere exertion to get to the Truth. It is not possession of the Truth, but rather the pursuit of Truth by which he extends his powers and in which his ever-growing perfectibility is to be found. Possession makes one passive, indolent, and proud. If God were to hold all Truth concealed in his right hand, and in his left only the steady and diligent drive for Truth, albeit with the proviso that I would always and forever err in the process, and offer me the choice, I would with all humility take the left hand, and say: Father, I will take this one—the pure Truth is for You alone.
