Note 030
by Joachim C. Fest

See Heiden, Adolf Hitler, Vol. I. On another occasion he asserted,

'If you pass through ten halls and everywhere men shout for you with enthusiasm — that surely is a sublime feeling' (see Gorlitz and Quint, Adolf Hitler).

Of the energizing force which Hitler derived from his oratorical triumphs, Goebbels remarked in a diary during the war:

'Its good for the Fuhrer to speak to a larger audience. He not only radiates strength, but becomes charged with it himself' (The Goebbels Diaries, 1942-43, entry for 15th November 1943).
From Chapter 3 ,The Fuhrer , Part 1 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
