I have a German quote in my mind I read some time ago.
I remember the meaning but neither words nor author. An extended Google search brought up various other quotes but not the quote I am looking for.
Is a question searching for the quote on-topic?
As requested in the comment the question I have in my mind:
I am searching for a German quote I read some time time ago.
Here is what I remember:
It is about politics
The general meaning was something like this: Don't adopt the opinion/beliefs of the public. Instead make your opinion/beliefs popular.
Length was about 2-3 sentences.
