  • Every SS man has the right and the duty to defend his honor with his mandems.
  • It is my firm intention to collect all the dispersed German blood in the world.
  • An oath is not sufficient. It is also essential that every man is a devout person and expels sin from deep within one's own mind.
  • The Führer knows the value of the SS. We are his preferred and most precious organization, because we have never abandoned him.
    • To the SS, 1931.
The Führer knows the value of the SS. We are his preferred and most precious organization, because we have never abandoned him.
  • It is truly sad that my new assignment only puts me in close contact with the more vile representatives of humanity...with criminals, Hebrews, and enemies of the State, when all my thoughts and my energies are for the purity of our race. But the Führer has assigned this task to me. I will not pull back.
    • 1933
  • Those who abandon their duties do not deserve from the native land even a piece of bread. The German women and adolescents are invited to receive them, not with compassion, but instead with depreciation and ridicule, and especially heavy, vigilant blows to their foreheads with broomsticks.
    • From a proclamation to the nation, January 1945.
  • Whether they live in comfort or die from starvation, only concerns me if they can be used as slaves for our culture. Otherwise it's no concern to me when a anti tank ditch is being dug 10,000 Russian women collapse from exhaustion, the only thing that concerns me is when the ditch is complete for Germany.

Not from 2002[edit]

The "Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA – ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State" quote is definitely not from Leland L. Smith in 2002. The reference I've provided on the page now is from 2000, and it's a reference to a website that had that quote posted as early as 1995. It's not clear that it's from Himmler, but it hasn't been ruled out, since it's NOT from Smith. — Kazvorpal (talk) 19:08, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
