~ Wir Deutsche fürchten Gott ~
This quotation is found in many slight variations, but always starting with the first phrase shown here. It was part of a speech made to the German Parliament on February 6, 1888 by Prince Otto von Bimarck. It is presented here on an artillery shell character stein made by Marzi & Remy (mold # 490) ca. 1900.
Wir Deutsche fürchten Gott
und sonst nichts auf der Welt.
We Germans fear God
and nothing else in the world.
