Who can think that this eviction of Germans was undertaken only as a temporary experiment? Those who adopted the decision on the eviction of the Germans from these territories, and who understood that Poles from other Polish districts would at once move into these territories, cannot suggest after a while to carry out reverse measures. The very idea of involving millions of people in such experiments is unbelievable, quite apart from the cruelty of it, both towards the Poles and the Germans themselves.
'What's the good of Mercator's North Poles and Equators, Tropics, Zones and Meridian lines?' So the Bellman would cry: and the crew would reply, 'Theyare merely conventional signs!'
To be a Pole does not mean just to speak Polish or to feel close to other Poles, but to value the Polish nation above all else ... [A Pole] must accept everything Polish, both good and bad, and must accept every period of the nation's history, both strong and weak.roman dmowski
We, the Poles, do not understand war as a symbol but as a real fight.wladyslaw sikorski
The purpose of the University of Washington cannot be to produce black lawyers for blacks, Polish lawyers for Poles, Jewish lawyers for Jews, Irish lawyers for Irish. It should be to produce good lawyers for Americans and not to place First Amendment barriers against anyone.william o. douglas
Among all the large and small nations of Austria, only three standard-bearers of progress took an active part in history, and still retain their vitality the Germans, the Poles and the Magyars.… All the other large and small nationalities and peoples are destined to perish before long in the revolutionary world storm ( Weltsturm ).Friedrich Engels
We must make, if we can, an enduring peace. That is why I feel so strongly regarding the proposal to hand over two million Germans to the Poles, who are an inferior people so far as concerns the experience and capacity for government. We do not want to create another Alsace-Lorraine.david lloyd george
There was a solemn article in the local paper seriously advocating systematic exterminating of the entire German nation as the only proper course after military victory: because, if you please, they are rattlesnakes, and don't know the difference between good and evil ! (What of the writer?) The Germans have just as much right to declare the Poles and Jews exterminable vermin, subhuman, as we have to select the Germans: in other words, no right, whatever they have done.j. r. r. tolkien
Poles outraged by Obama’s reference to ‘Polish death camp’.
There are few virtues which the Poles do not possess and there are few errors they have ever avoided.
"The intentions of Her Highness the Empress of Russia [Catherine the Great], ally of the Polish Commonwealth, in introducing her army, are and have been none other than to restore to the Commonwealth and to Poles freedom, and in particular to all the country's citizens, security and happiness."
"[I will speak no more] of the former Poland and the Poles. That country and that name are no more, as with so many others in the history of the world. I am now forever a Russian."
All things that move between the quiet Poles Shall be at my command: emperors and kings Are but obeyed in their several provinces, Nor can they raise the wind, or rend the clouds; But his dominion that exceeds in this Stretcheth as far as doth the mind of man; A sound magician is a demi-god.Christopher Marlowe
I spill water on myself all the time at nice restaurants. I've run into Poles and knocked myself out.kristin kreuk
They don't make Poles long enough for me want to touch Microsoft products, and I don't want any mass-marketed game-playing device or Windows appliance near my desk or on my network. This is my workbench, dammit, it's not a pretty box to impress people with graphics and sounds. When I work at this system up to 12 hours a day, I'm profoundly uninterested in what user interface a novice user would prefer.erik naggum
I'm looking for the binding energy of a looka crop of reflections to be reapedin a winter of thornwhen icebergs of illusion will meltto be served at high teaand the spaces between the Poles pinned downnancy peters
Let a man be firmly principled in his religion, he may travel from the tropics to the Poles, it will never catch cold on the journey.william morley punshon
And he said "God, make it a dream!" as he rode his last ride down. And he sideswiped nineteen neat parked cars, clipped off thirteen telephone Poles, hit two houses, bruised eight trees, and Blue-Crossed seven people. it was then he lost his head, not to mention an arm or two before he stopped.harry chapin
Let us consider two important factors, the two Poles of the creation of art: the artist on one hand, and on the other the spectator who later becomes the posterity; to all appearances the artist acts like a mediumistic being who, from the labyrinth beyond time and space, seeks his way out to a clearing.marcel duchamp
"Education must begin with the solution of the teacher-student contradiction, by reconciling the Poles of the contradiction so that both are simultaneously teachers and students."paulo freire
Love is not lust. The two (love and lust) are Poles apart. Love liberates while lust binds.swami narayanananda
In our egalitarian democracy, we have achieved the ultimate in making certain that all men are created equal: we have just about empowered a branch of the government, the Federal Housing Administration, to specify the size and shape of the typical American master bedroom (in which all Americans are thus created equal); to specify the size and ...to specify the width, length, straightness or curvature, surface, presence or absence of trees, sidewalks, telephone Poles, etc, etc, of most suburban streets (on which all American youngsters play equal) – at their considerable peril.Peter Blake
The Greeks observed a paradox about the dyad : While it appears separate from unity, its opposite Poles remember their source and attract each other in an attempt to merge and return to the state of unity. The dyad simultaneously divides and unites, repels and attracts, separates and returns.

Certainly it is a heaven upon earth to have a man's mind to move in charity, rest in providence, and turn upon the Poles of truth.Francis Bacon
Scenes of suffering and horror marked the storm and fire. Throughout the night relief workers and ambulances endeavored to make their way through the streets strewn with wreckage, fallen telegraph Poles and wires and burning embers. The only light afforded was that of the burning area…
Communism and fascism or nazism, although Poles apart in their intellectual content, are similar in this, that both have emotional appeal to the type of personality that takes pleasure in being submerged in a mass movement and submitting to superior authority .
We must therefore turn to history for enlightenment; here we find that none of the proclaimed anarchist groups correspond to the libertarian position, that even the best of them have unrealistic and socialistic elements in their doctrines. Furthermore, we find that all of the current anarchists are irrational collectivists, and therefore at opposite Poles from our position. We must therefore conclude that we are not anarchists, and that those who call us anarchists are not on firm etymological ground, and are being completely unhistorical.
