Dear Adolf,
Farmer: "We'll choke you with wheat and corn."
Mother: "I do not say it is just or right to hate. I say we hate you for having caused this hate."
Businessman: "You can't do business with a man who doesn't know the meaning of a contract."
Laborer: "We're sending you a letter 20 million workers long... written in steel and flame"
US Soldier: "We'll marry the girl we like—and the guy who makes a crack about her ancestry had better look out for his teeth."  (from Time Magazine August 3, 1942)
And an Austrian-Born naturalized American Citizen: "(In America) We don't have to lick the boots of our bosses."
