Poison Politics

Some of the smartest people around are completely stressed out and really really smart.

So, we’re celebrating National Winston Churchill Day!

Some of our favorite Churchill utterances:

 

 


Lady Astor to Winston Churchill:
‘If you were my husband I’d poison your brandy.’

Churchill:
‘If you were my wife I’d drink it.’


“An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”


“There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.”


“To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”


“If you’re going through hell, keep going.”


Bessie Braddock:
“Winston, you are drunk, and what’s more you are disgustingly drunk.”

Churchill:
“Bessie, my dear, you are ugly, and what’s more, you are disgustingly ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be disgustingly ugly.”
