Winston Churchill
Born November 30, 1874.  Died January 24, 1965.  British Prime Minister from 1940 to 1955.  Author of  The Second World War and A History of the English Speaking Peoples.

  • Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.

  • Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has not heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains.

  • I would say to the House, as I said to those who have joined this Government: 'I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.

  • So they (the Government) go on in strange paradox, decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent.

  • I like a man who grins when he fights.

  • A cat will look down to a man. A dog will look up to a man. But a pig will look you straight in the eye and see his equal.

  • Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but most times he will pick himself up and carry on.

  • The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

  • Everyone has his day and some days last longer than others.

  • We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.

  • Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duty, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Commonwealth and the Empire last for a thousand years, men will still say, "This was their finest hour".

  • Never in the field of human conflicts was so much owed by so many to so few.

  • From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic an iron curtain has descended across the Continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe.

  • The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

  • When you have to kill a man it costs nothing to be polite.

  • I am ready to meet my maker, but whether my maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
