1
Franz Beckenbauer
German football is like English football. The Germans and the English do not play like a Brazilian side. They have to improve, bring up their young players, who have character.
2
James F. Byrnes
German militarism and Nazism have devastated twice in our generation the lands of german neighbors.

Suzanne Fields
German businessmen are overwhelmed by the high cost of doing business. Inflexible rules, enforced by a burgeoning bureaucracy, discourage entrepreneurship.
4
Janeane Garofalo
German accents and Hassidic accents aren't that romantic. They're more harsh. Although Hebrew, when spoken by certain people, sounds beautiful. There's this beautiful woman I know who speaks Hebrew, and when she speaks, it's so attractive. Maybe it's who's speaking it.
5
Brian Lumley
German readers are much like Brits or Americans: They read for the thrill of it, the occasional shudder down the spine, knowing it's not real - but looking over their shoulders anyway, just in case.

Michael Strahan
German women love American men. That's why a lot of American servicemen go to Germany - and never come back.
