Let's All Take A Moment ...

Let's all take a moment and enjoy a few of my favorite obscure Churhill quotes! I'd also forgotten how much I love Churchhill quotes!

"I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns."

"History will be kind to me for I intend to write it."

"I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals."

AND, most importantly ...

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

That one's my favorite. The acceptance of the beyond. To do all you can, and then do more.


Have I mentioned that I missed you? I was ready to come down there and get you online myself! Of course, that would have meant having to bring dh, and as long as he was coming, I might as well bring the kids...

Wouldn't that have been fun?

There aren't many statesmen like Churchill today. (In fact, come to think of it, there aren't many statesmen, period; just politicians.) Churchill had a real way with words. Though there was that quote of his, something about "more jaw-jaw than war-war." Oh well, even Homer nodded.

Lol! Actually, Leni, that WOULD have been fun :)
