    For a future project i'm searching for remarkable quotes of current and former GB members.

    I've two personal, validated quotes:

    "Sprechen sie Deutsch?" "Ah, ein bisschen!" - Albert Schroeder

    "All those restless mountain people" about dancing Ethiopians during a Addis Abeba restaurant visit - unknown older GB member.

    Please, let me know you're quotes of GB members. I will use them for a publication project.

    I only know mainly what Ray Frnz wrote in his books. The one that stuck in my mind was Knorr, paraphrase:

    "I believe in Jesus and in the Bible, all that 1914 stuff I'm not sure about."

    Rutherford said regarding the whole 1925 thing:

    "I made an ass of myself."

    They printed this in The Watchtower, and it's STILL in the Watchtower Library CD-ROM.

    "Because when I was having my questioning by the two members of the Governing body, they asked me about 1914 and I said: 'Do all the members of the governing body believe this fully?' And they said well maybe not one or two. Of course Ray Franz was one but there was another member of the governing body that twice expressed himself in not believing in the 1914 date. And I heard brother Knorr twice mention this. I thought one time he said a quite fine thing, he says: 'We might be wrong about 1914, but I know what God and Christ have done for us, and that's enough for any man." But twice he mentioned that we could be wrong about 1914." - Ed Dunlap

    'There is more evidence confirming the existence of the Kingdom than the evidence that would convince us that there is gravity, electricity and wind!'

    Gravity and electricity, yes, everyone knows that, but wind? I don't think so!

    During a talk I found online. Anthony Morris III was giving a talk regarding higher education. He spoke about a spiritual education because it is "superior" and leads to everlasting life. Well, he goes on with the doom and gloom talk about how the parents put the kid in college and all of a sudden (drum roll) the kid stops attending meetings. The parents come to the Brothers and say, "why didn't you do more for my son/daughter?" He replies in the talk...."who dropped em off there?"

    This one really got to me. What a smug, arrogant, self righteous ass!

    Whatever happened to seasoning your words with salt Brother Morris? You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

    And they wonder why donations are down and people are flying the coup!

    Then he gave a talk this summer about not judging our Brothers. What the hell! You just can't make this stuff up!

    Yes wind is out of place in that quote. Wind is evidence of Brussels sprouts, not the kingdom.

    Dan Sydlik to the new black brother at the table, "Boy pass me the potatoes." New brother says, "I am not your boy." Sydlik rebuttals, "NiXXer, pass me the potatoes."

    Or something like that. I just read it from one of the other posters who has been sharing Bethel stories recently.
