Sir Winston Churchill (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) was a British politician who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, Churchill was a former officer in the British Army. He also was active as a historian, a writer, and an artist. Since its inception in 1901, Churchill is the only British Prime Minister to have won the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.
Churchill was born into the aristocratic family of the Dukes of Marlborough, a branch of the Spencer family. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, was a charismatic politician who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer; his mother, Jennie Jerome, was an American socialite.
As a young army officer, he saw action in British India, the Sudan, and the Second Boer War. To earn more money he chose to switch to war corresponent role. His initial fame comes from his activities as a war correspondent.
Churchill career spans the decline of British empire.
Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. Speech in November 1942
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 We shall fight on the beaches - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.
True genius resides in the capacity for evaluation of uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information.
Success is going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm.
If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law.
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.
The speech was made 29 October 1941 to the boys at Churchill's old public [private] school, Harrow--not Oxford or Cambridge:"
Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.'' See full speech.
"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."-- Speech made in the House of Commons as the Battle Britain peaked on August 20, 1940. The home front was totally involved in the war because of the Germany bombing raids and Britain was "a whole nation fighting and suffering together." But special gratitude was directed towards the airmen whose prowess and devotion were capable of turning the tide of the war. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few. He worked out the phrase in his mind as he visited the Fighter Command airfields in Southern England.
Lady Astor: "Winston, if I were your wife I'd put poison in your coffee."
Winston: "Nancy, if I were your husband I'd drink it."
"Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage."
- Winston Churchill
"A good speech should be like a woman's skirt: long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest."
- Winston Churchill
"Life is fraught with opportunities to keep your mouth shut."
