This week’s quotes of the week come from Winston Churchill and they illustrate the mood I’m in this evening.
“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it”.
“Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.”
“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. “
“The price of greatness is responsibility. “
“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give. “
“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.”
“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” Nov 1942
