„Be an example to your men in your duty and in private life.“

—  Erwin Rommel German field marshal of World War II 1891 - 1944

Address as Director of the Military School in Weiner Neustadt at the passing out parade of the 1938 class of cadets.
A note by General Bayerlein in the Rommel Papers (1953), edited by Basil Henry Liddell Hart. p. 241.[[War without Hate ]]
Контексте: Be an example to your men in your duty and in private life. Never spare yourself, and let the troops see that you don't, in your endurance of fatigue and privation. Always be tactful and well-mannered and teach your subordinates to be the same. Avoid excessive sharpness or harshness of voice, which usually indicates the man who has shortcomings of his own to hide.

„He who writes poetry is not a poet. He whose poetry has become his life, and who has made his life his poetry — it is he who is a poet.“

„Physical processes alone will never completely explain the existence of the universe, life, and consciousness.“

—  Peter J. Carroll British occultist 1953

Источник: Liber Null & Psychonaut (1987), p. 151
Контексте: Physical processes alone will never completely explain the existence of the universe, life, and consciousness. Religious answers are just wishful thinking and wanton fabrication cast over a bottomless pit of ignorance. To explain their occult and mystical experiences, magicians are forced to develop models beyond the scope of materialistic or religious systems.

„The life, no matter how traumatic, never explains the work, if the work is any good.“

—  John Leonard American critic, writer, and commentator 1939 - 2008

"No Expectations" http://nymag.com/nymetro/arts/tv/reviews/n_9607/, New York Magazine (12 December 2003)
Контексте: The life, no matter how traumatic, never explains the work, if the work is any good. W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, Doris Lessing, and Saul Bellow variously believed in faeries, funny money, flying saucers, and orgone energy accumulation, but so have millions of other people who never got around to writing even a mediocre poem or novel.
