Thoughts for our leaders by Winston Churchill - #drjohnakingBy Sir Winston Churchill (the single greatest war time politician…. ever)

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

“It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.”

“Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.”

“One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.”

“We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire…Give us the tools and we will finish the job.”

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

“Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
