Umm...
First of all that first quote isn't even real (couldn't find enough about the second to come to a conclusion). Second, maybe don't be a nazi?

I don't speak German, but my guess is that it's a translation of Hitler's speech to English.

Secondly, liking Hitler's quotes doesn't make you a Nazi just like liking cars doesn't make you a mechanic.

No, its literally just not something he said. Its usually misattributed to Gandhi, but I'm pretty sure he didn't say it either. Also, naw admiring hitler makes you a nazi

Fine then, go online and find out who said that. I'll give you the credit.

Secondly, everyone has a light side and a dark side. I'm admiring Hitler's light side, which refers to his victories attained after his struggle, not the genocides he committed or whatever bad deeds he did.

Looks like no one actually said it, it was just made up (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/30/opinion/falser-words-were-never-spoken.html). Also, naw. Being a fascist dictator bent on wiping out an entire people kinda strips you of any good qualities you may have had

Firstly, saying 'no one said it' is just like saying 'everyone said it', so I'm still considering this a quote by Hitler, Gandhi, and every other person who has changed the world through great effort.

Also, I disagree with you. Adolf Hitler may not have been really pure-hearted, but he was successful, there was a great host of people following him, and he had achieved that position through great effort, not by inheriting a kingdom from his father. He was well known for his speeches, and he was successful in life as well.

Also, you say that 'Being a fascist dictator bent on wiping out an entire people kinda strips you of any good qualities you may have had' -- does that mean all Americans are evil because they waged war against Native Americans and seized their lands? All British people are evil because they tried to tyrannically ruled hundreds of lesser kingdoms and peoples with no respect for their lives? How many people will you brand as 'evil' until entire of humanity is branded as evil.

I was sure that "Be the change you want to see if the world" was from Gandhi. Have we just been told that because it sounds better?
