Quotes by Winston S. Churchill ( I )

The political history of the 20th century can be written as the biographies of six men: Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao Zedong, Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill. The first four were totalitarians who made or used revolutions to create monstrous dictatorships.

Roosevelt and Churchill differed from them in being democrats. And Churchill differed from Roosevelt - while both were war leaders, Churchill was uniquely stirred by the challenge of war and found his fulfillment in leading the democracies to victory.                              

                                     Sir Winston Churchill portrait
                                     1874- 1965
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”
“You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
“My tastes are simple: I am easily satisfied with the best.”
“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.”
“Never, never, never give in!”
