Quotations attributed to Sir Winston Churchill

There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
 
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
 
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
 
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
 
I am easily satisfied with the very best.

  1. After his retirement, Winston Churchill was cruising the Mediterranean on an Italian cruise liner, and some Italian journalists asked why an ex-British Prime Minister should chose an Italian ship.

    “There are three things I like about being on an Italian cruise ship”, said Churchill.

    First, their cuisine is unsurpassed.

    Second, their service is superb.

    And then, in time of emergency, there is none of this nonsense about women and children first.”
