Description


Whether you have admired Churchill for your entire life or learned of him through recent movies like The Darkest Hour and Dunkirk, you will be charmed, amused, and astonished by the depth of his though and wisdom of his writing, and his humor.

“For myself I am an optimist. It does not seem to be much use being anything else.”

“A love of tradition has never weakened a nation, it indeed it has strengthened nations in their hour of peril; but the new view must come, the world must roll forward…Let us have no fear of the future.”

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries”

Winston Churchill led Britain though the darkest hours of World War II and on to victory, but you may not know the range of his speech and writings. Here you will admire Churchill’s devious brand of smarts and learn from his political and humanist outlook on life. Discover what he had to say about:
