Do you think this is the best?
We shall never surrender!
Lady Astor: Winston if you were my husband I would poison your tea.
Churchill: Madam, if I were your husband I would take it.
He was a very witty man, and that is my fave quip by him!
He is one of my favorite character's in history.
He deserves his place in history. The world has had many leaders, but very few were worth following.
If you get a chance, if you haven't already, I have read two biographies:
Winston Churchill: The Valiant Years by Jack LeVien and John Lord
Winston Churchill by Robert Lewis Taylor
He was a strong, compassionate, intelligent, leader who lead a very adventurous life.
I have a collection of his speeches on tape, its clever and inspiring stuff. He knew what was going to happen years before anyone else even wanted to think it.
Excelent, that must be a treat to listen to. I would look for that on CD if available.
I have "We shall never surrender" as an mp3, i'll upload that somewhere if you want.
wow that would be great, Thanks so much.
It's 12 mins in length, the never surrender bit is the last 2 minutes. He says it all in such an understated way, but its so inspiring and in the moment.
I admire him as he recognized straigh away that Nazist Germany was something crazy. Noone believed him at first. They had to wait for Second World War to know he was right.
