Triumph of the Will (1935)
Adolf Hitler: It is our will that this state shall endure for a thousand years. We are happy to know that the future is ours entirely!
Josef Goebbels: [Speech during the Reich Party Conference] May the bright flame of enthusiasm never be extinguished. It alone gives light and warmth to the creative art of modern political propaganda. This art rose from the depths of the people and in order to search out its roots and locate its power, it must always return to these depths. It may be alright to possess power based upon guns, it is however better and more gratifying to win and also to champion the hearts of the people.

Rudolf Hess: I open the sixth Party Congress in respectful memory of he who has passed on to eternity, Field Marshal and Reich President von Hindenburg...
Adolf Hitler: We want this people to be hard, not soft, and you must steel yourselves for it in your youth!
Adolf Hitler: When our party had only seven men, it already had two principles. First, it wanted to be a party with a true ideology. And second, it wanted to be the one and only power in Germany.
Konstantin Hierl: [Reich Labor Service Corp/Reicharbeitdienst chief presents his men to Hitler] My Führer! I report 52,000 Labor Services men for review.
Adolf Hitler: Hail, my Labor Service men!
Reich Labor Service Men: [All 52,000 men, in thundering unison] Hail, my Führer!
Adolf Hitler: There is always a part of society that sets themselves apart and more is expected from them than from the millions of national comrades. For them, it is not enough to simply pledge 'I believe', but rather the affirmation 'I fight'!
Adolf Hitler: Our party remains as firm as this rock and will not be divided by any force in Germany.
Adolf Hitler: All upright Germans will be National Socialists, but only the best National Socialists will be party members!
[after invoking God as the creator of the German people]
Adolf Hitler: The state doesn't order us! We order the state! We created the state!
Hans Frank: As chief of the German justice system, I can only say that since the National Socialist legal system is the foundation of the National Socialist State, for us, our supreme Führer is also supreme judge. And since we know how sacred the principles of justice are to our Führer, we can assure you, fellow citizens, that your life and existence is secure in this National Socialist State of order, freedom, and law!
Otto Dietrich: Truth is the basis on which the power of the press stands and falls. Our only demand of the foreign press and our own press, is that they report the truth about Germany.
Fritz Reinhardt: Wherever we look, building work is going on. Everywhere values are being improved and new values created. And everywhere there has been industrious activity in the last year, and this activity will continue in the future.
[Original: Wohin wir blicken, überall wird gebaut, überall werden Werte verbessert und Werte neu geschaffen. Überall herrscht seit einem Jahr reges Leben und wird auch in Zukunft reges Leben herrschen]
Julius Streicher: A people that does not protect its racial purity will perish!
Robert Ley: One thought must alone dominate all our work: to make the German worker an upright, upstanding, proud and decent citizen, enjoying equal rights with the rest of the Reich!
Adolf Hitler: The German people are happy in the knowledge that a constantly changing vision has been replaced by a steadfast pole!
Rudolf Hess: [adressing Hitler] You were our guarantor of victory. You are our guarantor of peace. Heil Hitler! Sieg Heil, Sieg Heil!
Fritz Todt: The Reich has begun construction of the Autobahn at 51 places. Although the work is in an early stage, 52,000 men are employed at the contruction sites. A further 100,000 are employed in supplying material...
Rudolf Hess: [adressing Hitler] Thanks to your leadership, Germany will reach its goal of being home... of being home to all Germans throughout the world!
