WINSTON CHURCHILL QUOTES
Churchill was born from a prominent family, and he used his mother’s connections to get himself posted in a war zone at the young age of 21. He also got involved in politics and went through many positions in the government before he became the prime minister. With all of these accomplishments, he became a beacon of wisdom. We collected a couple of his most impactful quotes.
“To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”
“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”
“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.”
“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”
“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy then an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then it becomes a tyrant and, in the last stage, just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.”
“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.”
“It is wonderful what great strides can be made when there is a resolute purpose behind them.”
“This is the lesson: never give in, 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.”
“All the greatest things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom; justice; honour; duty; mercy; hope.”
