Winston Churchill, clearly one of the Worlds most colourful leaders ever, would have been 142 today.
That probably calls for a drink. Or two.
Some of my favourite Winny quotes;
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
“The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.”
“I don’t drink anymore. I don’t drink any less, either.”
And how about this gem when a woman accused him of being drunk;
“Sir, you are drunk.” “And you, madam, are ugly. But in the morning, I shall be sober.”
