Words of wisdom from Churchill, one of Britain’s great men.
– an appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile hoping it will eat him last
– success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm
– a joke is a very serious thing
– The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
– The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter
– Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look at it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse pulling a cart
– Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference
– A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and who won’t change the subject
– Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential
– A pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty
– Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts
– A lie gets half way round the world before the truth has a chance to pull its trousers up
– If you’re going through hell – keep going
