20 FAV Sir Winston Churchill quotes

churchill10

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities because it has been said, it is the quality which guarantees all others.

There is only one duty, only one safe course, and that is to try to be right and not to fear to do or say what you believe to be right.

The price of greatness is responsibility.

Out of intense complexities, intense simplicities emerge.

It’s not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what’s required.

Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

Never, never, never give up.

Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

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

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

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 not fail or falter. We shall not weaken or tire. Neither the sudden shock of battle nor the long-drawn trials of vigilance and exertion will wear us down. Give us the tools and we will finish the job.

If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time-a tremendous whack.
