'We now need National Socialist ardour rather than professional ability, to settle matters in The East.
Obviously I cannot expect this of you'


( Hitlers reply to Halder who warned him of the dire risks involved in Case Blue. Halder was promptly sacked. )

'Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war.
If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.

But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a New Dark Age, made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.
Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth lasts for a thousand years,
men will still say, “This was their finest hour!'


Always makes the hairs go up on the back of my neck!!

This Churchill qoute is the hair raiser for me.

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old

Winston: I may be drunk madam, but you are ugly...and in the morning I will be sober.

I also love the following:
Lady Astor - "Winston, if you were my husband, I would put poison in your coffee!"
Churchill - "If I were your husband, I would drink it!"

Surely though the most important one he made was this.
"You ask what is our aim? I can answer in 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."
This was the moment when the war wasn't lost and December 7th (and 10th I think when Germany declared war) when it was won

Edward R. Murrow said this about him much late :
"He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle."

Sorry CanoeRebel, but I have come to have great respect for Uncle Billy because of the high rate of property taxation here!!! I wish Uncle Billy would come marching through Georgia again!

"Although extraordinary valor was displayed by the entire corps of Spartans and Thespians, yet bravest of all was declared the Spartan Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that the Persian archers were so numerous that their arrows would block out the sun. Dienekes, however, undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, 'Good. Then we will fight in the shade.'" - Herodotus, Histories

Carthage must die! (go) is one of my favorite lessons I used in my Western Civilization Classes. NEVER arouse the Romans! The whole 3rd Punic War didn't have to happen...but Cato certainly thought so...
