This was how the title came about for this book, Uncle Hitler, although in the old German tradition, I called him Uncle Adolf, even though I was not related to him.

8. "A faith-healer may or may not start out with fraud in mind. But to his amazement, his patients actually seem to be improving. Their emotions are genuine, their gratitude heart-felt. When the healer is criticized, such people rush to his defence. Several elderly attendees of the channelling at the Sydney Opera House were incensed after the Sixty Minutes expose: ‘Never mind what they say,' they told Alvarez, ‘we believe in you`. These successes may be enough to convince many charlatans, no matter how cynical they were at the beginning, that they actually have mystical powers. Maybe they're not successful every time. The powers come and go, they tell themselves. They have to cover the down time. If they must cheat a little now and then, it serves a higher purpose, they tell themselves. Their spiel is consumer-tested. It works."
Author: Carl Sagan

Author: David Foster Wallace
13. "Those without the gate frequently question the wisdom and right of the occultist to guard his knowledge by the imposition of oaths of secrecy.

Author: Dion Fortune

My idea is to live virtually unafraid. We're never told of forces equally unabashed. It's a concoction for thrills, sure, but it's also a formula for heartbreak. The kind of heartbreak that congeals around the flesh; slows a person down to the freezing point, and cheats them of the most significant civilities left in this world."
Author: Jason Daniel Chaplin
23. "... I succeeded at math, at least by the usual evaluation criteria: grades. Yet while I might have earned top marks in geometry and algebra, I was merely following memorized rules, plugging in numbers and dutifully crunching out answers by rote, with no real grasp of the significance of what I was doing or its usefulness in solving real-world problems. Worse, I knew the depth of my own ignorance, and I lived in fear that my lack of comprehension would be discovered and I would be exposed as an academic fraud -- psychologists call this "imposter syndrome"."
Author: Jennifer Ouellette

And I liked that he had two names. I've always liked people with two names, because you get to make up your mind what you call them: Gus or Augustus? Me, I was always just Hazel, univalent Hazel."
Author: John Green

As you know, if the balance is tipped to the point where investors are not confident that there are appropriate protections, investors will lose confidence in our markets, and capital formation will ultimately be made more difficult and expensive."
Author: Mary Schapiro
38. "If you only notice human proceedings, you may observe that all who attain great power and riches, make use of either force or fraud; and what they have acquired either by deceit or violence, in order to conceal the disgraceful methods of attainment, they endeavor to sanctify with the false title of honest gains. Those who either from imprudence or want of sagacity avoid doing so, are always overwhelmed with servitude and poverty; for faithful servants are always servants, and honest men are always poor; nor do any ever escape from servitude but the bold and faithless, or from poverty, but the rapacious and fraudulent. God and nature have thrown all human fortunes into the midst of mankind; and they are thus attainable rather by rapine than by industry, by wicked actions rather than by good. Hence it is that men feed upon each other, and those who cannot defend themselves must be worried."
Author: Niccolò Machiavelli
39. "Reiten, reiten, reiten, durch den Tag, durch die Nacht, durch den Tag.Reiten, reiten, reiten. Und der Mut ist so müde gewordenund die Sehnsucht so groß. Es gibt keine Berge mehr,kaum einen Baum. Nichts wagt aufzustehen.Fremde Hütten hocken durstig an versumpften Brunnen.Nirgends ein Turm. Und immer das gleiche Bild. Man hat zwei Augen zuviel. Nur in der Nachtmanchmal glaubt man den Weg zu kennen.Vielleicht kehren wir nächtens immer wiederdas Stück zurück, das wir in der fremden Sonne mühsam gewonnen haben? Es kann sein. Die Sonne ist schwer, wie bei uns tief im Sommer. Aber wir haben im Sommer Abschied genommen. Die Kleider der Frauen leuchteten lang aus dem Grün. Und nun reiten wir lang. Es muß also Herbst sein.Wenigstens dort, wo traurige Frauen von uns wissen."
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
40. "Artists are expected to fit into fraudulent categories."
Author: Robert Smithson
41. "I knew by this time what Thea thought of these people and in fact of most people, with their faulty humanity. She couldn't stand them. And what her eccentricity amounted to was that she proposed a different kind of humanity altogether. I guess nothing restrains people from demanding ideal conditions. Very little restrains them from anything. Thea's standard was high, but she wasn't exactly to blame as having arbitrarily set it high. For when she talked to me about some particular person she'd be more frightened than scornful. People with whom she had to struggle scared her, and what I'd call average hypocrisy, just the incidental little whiffs of the social machine, was terribly hard on her. As for greediness or envy, fat self-smelling of appreciation, hates and destructions, fraud, gnawing, she had a very poor tolerance of them, and I'd see her go out in the eyes in a really dangerous way at a gathering."
Author: Saul Bellow

Author: Volker Pispers
48. "Ashenden admiraba la bondad, pero no le ofendía lo innoble. La gente le creía hombre sin corazón porque estudiaba más que apreciaba a las personas a su alrededor, e incluso de aquellos a quienes sinceramente quería veía con claridad meridiana sus defectos y sus virtudes. Cuando alguien le gustaba, no era porque fuese ciego a sus faltas, las aceptaba con un tolerante encogerse de hombros; o porque les imaginara dotes que no poseían, y tratando a sus amigos con la fanqueza derivada de esa rectitud de criterio, nunca le defraudaban y rara vez los perdía. No pedía a nadie más de lo que podía dar."
Author: W. Somerset Maugham
49. "El mundo no es este hermoso lugar feliz que yo siempre imaginé. Está lleno de fealdad por cada lado. No se puede confiar. Todo el mundo va a defraudarte. Y es mi tarea cuidar de mi misma. Nadie más lo va a hacer por mí."
Author: Willow Aster

Author: Yann Martel
