Winston Churchill

Act

I never worry about action, but only inaction.

It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.

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.

Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.

Democracy

The main vice of capitalism is the uneven distribution of prosperity. The main vice of socialism is the even distribution of misery.

Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried.

Give

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

You don't make the poor richer by making the rich poorer.

Hope

For myself I am an optimist — it does not seem to be much use being anything else.

Humility

Always remember, a cat looks down on man, a dog looks up to man, but a pig will look man right in the eye and see his equal.

Invest

There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.

Learn

It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.

There are a lot of lies going around … and half of them are true.

Give me the facts, and I will twist them the way I want, to suit my argument.

I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.

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

Plan

Let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

Rules

If you have 10,000 regulations, you destroy all respect for the law.

Save

Saving is a fine thing. Especially when your parents have done it for you.

Success

We shall neither fail nor falter; we shall not weaken or tire … give us the tools and we will finish the job

Tax

There is no such thing as a good tax.

We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
