I am not a huge fan of Winston Churchill. He may have led Britain through a difficult war, but at heart he was an aristocrat, an elitist, and a racist.
However, many of his quotes are gems, and worth remembering in modern times.
One for a certain Mr D Trump.
The price of greatness is responsibility.
One for the politically ignorant.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
One for Mr Biden to remember.
You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else.
One for those who acquitted Trump to reflect on.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
A prescient view of ‘Fake News’.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
Something for every country to consider, in the time of a pandemic.
Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have
One for nationalists and patriots to think hard about.
The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.
One that we can all relate to in the UK.
The British nation is unique in this respect. They are the only people who like to be told how bad things are, who like to be told the worst.
And the last one, for our consumerist society.
We are stripped bare by the curse of plenty.
