Winston Churchill Quote
“You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is 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.”
Speech in House of Commons, 13 May 1940
“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.”
Speech given at Harrow School, Harrow, England, October 29, 1941.
“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.”

Quote of the day
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
