Joseph Stalin Quote
“God is on your side? Is He a Conservative? The Devil's on my side, he's a good Communist.”
Said to Winston Churchill in Tehran, November 1943, as quoted in Fallen Eagle: The Last Days of the Third Reich (1995) by Robin Cross, p. 21 - Contemporary witnesses
This quote is widely attributed to Stalin, but may have been originated from a similar statement from the work "Französischer Witz" by Kurt Tucholsky (1932).

Quote of the day
“And ye, who have met with Adversity's blast, And been bow'd to the earth by its fury; To whom the Twelve Months, that have recently pass'd Were as harsh as a prejudiced jury - Still, fill to the Future! and join in our chime, The regrets of remembrance to cozen, And having obtained a New Trial of Time, Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen.”
