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.
