It's hard not to agree wholeheartedly with this quote from Josef Goebbels:
The little Hitlers in their entirety make up the will of the great Hitler. The great Hitler wouldn't have come, if the little Hitlers hadn't stood at his side.
How true that is. What most interests me about this quote is the effort one must make to recall that the term "little Hitlers" is intended as a compliment. It doesn't quite read that way these days, does it?
