Some quotes by Winston Churchill, the great British leader during World War II:

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.

***

Although prepared for martyrdom, I preferred that it be postponed.

***

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

***

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

***

I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.

***

There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.
