Fight for the right!

By January 26, 2015February 18th, 2021No Comments

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

WS Churchill

Never give in — never, never, never, never, in anything 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.

Some people’s idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.

WS Churchill

Speech to the House of Commons, 13 October, 1943

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

WS Churchill

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

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile – hoping it will eat him last.

WS Churchill

If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law.

WS Churchill

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

WS Churchill

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.

WS Churchill

It is no use saying, ‘We are doing our best’. You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.

WS Churchill

You ask, ‘What is our aim?’ I can answer with one word: Victory – victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.
