Boris III of Bulgaria
- "It would not frighten me if I were to lose my throne. If that were to happen, I would go right to America and get a job as a mechanic."
- "My ministers are pro-German, my wife is pro-Italian, my people are pro-Russian — I am the only neutral in the country."
- "Your king is entirely too neutral to suit us. Anyway, there is no place for kings in the new European order."
- - Hermann Göring, Third Reich politician, to a Bulgarian correspondent.
