Overview

Soldier, journalist, author, historian, biographer, politician, statesman, and head of state, Winston Churchill was not just a man of many talents, but an eloquent leader capable of influencing people around the world. Best remembered today for leading his country through the dark days of World War II, Churchill bolstered the spirits of his countrymen and women—and those far beyond Great Britain’s borders—with powerful, soaring rhetoric that still inspires today.

The Wit and Wisdom of Winston Churchill gathers together hundreds of quotations from Churchill’s speeches, broadcasts, remarks, books, and other writings on everything from politics and politicians to education, knowledge, information, and innovation; among them:

· “Politics are almost as exciting as war, and quite as dangerous. In war, you can only be killed once, but in politics many times.”

· “A nation without a conscience is a nation without a soul. A nation without a soul is a nation that cannot live.”

· “Strength is granted to us all when we are needed to serve great causes.”

· “There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human society, are created, strengthened and maintained.”

Complete with a selection of quotations from writers, politicians, and others, The Wit and Wisdom of Winston Churchill reveals not just the great leader’s unparalleled gift for oratory but also his insights about war, politics, and humanity that have made his rhetoric so unforgettable.
