Swing Kids (1993)

The Swing Kids were a group of jazz and swing lovers in Germany in the 1930s. They were composed of 14 to 18-year-old boys and girls in high school, most of them middle or upper-class students.They admired the British and American way of life, defining themselves in swing music and opposing the National-Socialist ideology, especially the Hitlerjugend (“Hitler Youth” or HJ).

Warrior (2011)

So you found God. Huh, that’s awesome. See, Mom kept calling out for him but he wasn’t around. I guess Jesus was down at the mill forgiving all the drunks, huh?

Alexander & Hephaestion →  Curtius [History of Alexander] book 2.12

He was by far the dearest to the King of all his friends; brought up with him, and confident of all his secrets, he also had more freedom than anyone else in admonishing him, a privilege which he neverthless used in such a manner that it seemed rather to be allowed by the King than claimed by himself: and though Hephaestion was old the same age as the King he neverthless excelled him in bodily stature.
