Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.
Blood, toil, tears, and sweat.
Be ye men of valour.
Never give in, 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.
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill was an author and political statesman who served as the Conservative Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the years 1940 - 1945 & 1951 - 1955. Churchill was born on November 30, 1874 in Oxfordshire, England, and passed away on January 24, 1965, in London. Arguably the most victorious prime minister in British history, Churchill is renowned for his perseverance in the face of imminent disaster during World War II. Greatly responsible for the downfall of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich, Churchill was a prominent force in gathering support and arms to combat the growing Axis powers. Pioneering new strategy and forming coalitions with the Allied forces, Churchill was able to lead his Nation from the brink of turmoil through unprecedented leadership against a populous and bureaucracy that was skeptical, to say the least, of his mental disposition. A prolific smoker and cigar aficionado, Churchill miraculously lived for 90 years. Plainly, as one of the most distinguished leaders in British history, it seems that Churchill possessed a will that was anathema to the concept of 'giving in.'
