Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.

Quotations from Winston Churchill:

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

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



 It is not given to human beings, happily for them, for otherwise life would be intolerable, to foresee or to predict to any large extent the unfolding course of events.

In one phase men seem to have been right, in another they seem to have been wrong.

Then again, a few years later, when the perspective of time has lengthened, all stands in a different setting.

There is a new proportion. There is another scale of values.

History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician
Speech on the death Neville Chamberlain, November 12, 1940, House of Commons 



 To jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war. June 26, 1954

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



 Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



 We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



 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.

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



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

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



 Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



 A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



 ...Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but usually manages to pick himself up, walk over or around it, and carry on.

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician



 The empires of the future will be empires of the mind.

Winston Churchill , (1874 - 1965) British Politician
