„Placed in a historic transition, I will pay for loyalty to the people with my life.“

Final address (1973)
Kontext: Placed in a historic transition, I will pay for loyalty to the people with my life. And I say to them that I am certain that the seeds which we have planted in the good conscience of thousands and thousands of Chileans will not be shriveled forever. They have force and will be able to dominate us, but social processes can be arrested by neither crime nor force. History is ours, and people make history.

Above all else, Himmler and the rest of the Nazi leadership stressed the importance of loyalty to the Reich and the Fuehrer.

„I quite like the transitions of being an actor, because you get to explore these little pockets of life.“

—  Matt Smith (actor) English actor 1982

As quoted in "The Big Interview : Matt Smith" at officiallondontheatre (14 May 2008 ) http://www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk/news/interviews/view/item100026/Matt-Smith/
Kontext: I quite like the transitions of being an actor, because you get to explore these little pockets of life. So if you’re playing a builder you get to know about building, if you’re playing a scientist or a physician or something you get to know about physics. And similarly with this world I like exploring their culture, that very sort of upper middle class, addictive… that’s part of the reason I love it.
