Churchill

En omgang Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965), statsmand, forfatter, krigshelt:

Tal i vrede, og du kommer til at holde den bedste tale, du nogensinde har fortrudt.

A joke is a very serious thing.

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.

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

He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.

If you're going through hell, keep going.

In Russia a man is called a reactionary if he objects to having his property stolen and children murdered.

Men occasionally stumble on the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

Out of intense complexities intense simplicities emerge.

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

The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes.

This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile -- hoping it will eat him last.

Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.

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

Today we may say aloud before an awe-struck world: "We are still masters of our fate. We are still captain of our souls".

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.
