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
