Naturally diplomatic...

Few selected quotes of Winston Churchill-
-A joke is a very serious thing.
-A politician needs 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.
-A prisoner of war is a man who tries to kill you and fails, and then asks you not to kill him.
-All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
-Broadly speaking, the short words are the best, and the old words best of all.
-Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities... because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
-Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
-Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.
-Eating words has never given me indigestion.
-History is written by the victors.
-However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.
-I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.
-It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.
-It is a fine thing to be honest, but it is also very important to be right.
-Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
-Perhaps it is better to be irresponsible and right, than to be responsible and wrong.
-The power of man has grown in every sphere, except over himself.
-There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.
-Those who can win a war well can rarely make a good peace and those who could make a good peace would never have won the war.
-Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.
