Winston Churchill

  1. 1. Winston Churchill   http://beariscool.blogspot.com/ All quotes from Winston Churchill .
  2. 2. A great politician <ul><li>The whole history of the world is summed up in the fact that, when nations are strong, they are not always just, </li></ul><ul><li>and when they wish to be just, they are no longer strong. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time. </li></ul><ul><li>The best argument against democracy </li></ul><ul><li>is a five minute conversation with the average voter. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. </li></ul><ul><li>And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Nothing to offer <ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Now this is not the end. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not even the beginning of the end. </li></ul><ul><li>But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Never yield to force; </li></ul><ul><li>never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  4. 4. Good riposte <ul><li>This is a good one </li></ul><ul><li>Lady Astor : Sir, if you were my husband, I would poison your drink. </li></ul><ul><li>Winston Churchill : Madam, if you were my wife, I would drink it. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>And what do you think of this one ? </li></ul><ul><li>Lady Astor: Mr. Churchill, you're drunk! </li></ul><ul><li>Winston Churchill: Yes, and you, Madam, are ugly. But tomorrow, I shall be sober. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Playing with words <ul><li>A fanatic is one who can't change his mind </li></ul><ul><li>and won't change the subject. </li></ul><ul><li>He has all the virtues I dislike </li></ul><ul><li>and none of the vices I admire. </li></ul><ul><li>Personally I'm always ready to learn, </li></ul><ul><li>although I do not always like being taught. </li></ul><ul><li>A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; </li></ul><ul><li>an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Right definition <ul><li>The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; </li></ul><ul><li>the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>I gather, young man, that you wish to be a Member of Parliament. </li></ul><ul><li>The first lesson that you must learn is, when I call for statistics about the rate of infant mortality, what I want is proof that fewer babies died when I was Prime Minister than when anyone else was Prime Minister. </li></ul><ul><li>That is a political statistic. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Be prepared <ul><li>There are a terrible lot of lies going around the world, </li></ul><ul><li>and the worst of it is half of them are true. </li></ul><ul><li>I am prepared to meet my Maker. </li></ul><ul><li>Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Conclusion <ul><li>However beautiful the strategy, </li></ul><ul><li>you should occasionally look at the results. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>It's not enough that we do our best; </li></ul><ul><li>sometimes we have to do what's required. </li></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><li>Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak, Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen . </li></ul><ul><li>All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: </li></ul><ul><li>freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope. </li></ul>
