Only the born weakling…

Only the born weakling can look upon this principle [of natural selection by the survival of the fittest in the struggle of life] as cruel, and if he does so it is merely because he is of a feebler nature and narrower mind…. [In order to prevent the inferior individuals from outnumbering the superior] a corrective measure in favour of the better quality must intervene. Nature supplies this by establishing rigorous conditions of life, to which the weaker will have to submit and will thereby be numerically restricted.

— Adolf Hitler, quoted in Six Modern Myths About Christianity & Western Civilization by Philip Sampson, p. 68
