    Otto vond Bismarck, now theres a statesman the Germans can actually be proud of.
    I believe that people make their own luck by great preparation and good strategy!

    The quote is ambivalent expressionless nonsense. She could have chosen from a few dozen hundreds of other quotes that say exactly the same thing. She did this on purpose. Quoting a man who is responsible for 60 million dead (and quite a few dead americans as well) is tasteless, to say the least. I wonder what happened if someone quoted chairman Mao in some Texan yearbook.

    Is it litigable? No. Is it inappropriate and tasteless and should be removed from a yearbook? Absolutely.

    Is this even a direct Hitler quote? I feel like this is one of those quotes that is often attributed to a lot of people.

    of course the quote was chosen on purpose. That's the whole point of yearbook quotes. People quote George Washington and Thomas Jefferson all the time, despite both of them having profiting from one of the most heinous evils in American history. Sure he was no Hitler but let's not pretend that every quotable person in history has to be a boy scout, or that terrible people have never said any great things.
