QUOTABLE WINSTON CHURCHILL: A Collection of Wit and Wisdom

RUNNING PRESS    Book Number: 86669    Product format: Hardback

A miniature teeny weeny 3" square portable guide of inspiration. Here are quotes and excerpts from some of Churchill's most famous speeches along with some pithy asides and acidic remarks that won him admiration from his allies and unrelenting enmity from his rivals. Following a brief biography, here is Churchill on life, war, the world, his contemporaries and selective speeches. On declining knighthood following the Tory defeat at the polls: "I could not receive the Order of the Garter from my sovereign when I received the order of the boot from his people." "Dictators ride too and throw upon tigers which they dare not dismount. And the tigers are getting hungry." And his definition of a politician: "He is asked to stand, he wants to sit, he is expected to lie." Many illus, 205 tiny pages.
