The clip A Teacher's Militarist Speece Part 3 from All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) That has not been part of my teaching. We have sought to make ourselves worthy, and let a claim come when it would. But to be foremost in battle... is a virtue not to be despised. I believe it will be a quick war, that there will be few losses. But if losses there must be, then let us remember the Latin phrase... which must have come to the lips of many a Roman... when he stood embattled in a foreign land: "Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori. " "Sweet and fitting it is to die for the fatherland. " Some of you may have ambitions. I know of one young man who has great promise as a writer, and he has written the first act of a tragedy... which would be a credit to one of the masters. And he is dreaming, I suppose, of following in the footsteps of Goethe and Schiller, and I hope he will.
