Winston Churchill quotes

Sir Winston Churchill:

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

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

And, speaking of election day:

Politics is the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.

If you have ten thousand regulations, you destroy all respect for the law.

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

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

A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.
