Churchill’s words of wisdom

Winston Churchill served the United Kingdom as its prime minister.  Some of his most memorable words of wisdom can enlighten our leaders today:

“Success isn’t final, failure isn’t fatal—it is the courage to continue that counts.”


“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something sometime in your life.”

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. It is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”


“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

“It isn’t enough that we do our best—sometimes, we should do what is required.”

“A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject!”

“Never give in—except to convictions of honor and good sense.”

“The price of greatness is responsibility.”

“Continuous effort—not strength or intelligence—is the key to unlocking our potential.”

“We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out.”


“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: Freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy and hope.”

“Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it; ignorance may deride it—but, in the end, there it is!”
