Quotes and excerpts from Churchill we found amusing

" By being so long in the lowest form (at Harrow) I gained an immense advantage over the cleverer boys.... I got into my bones the essential structure of the ordinary British sentence - which is a noble thing.... Naturally I am biased in favour of boys learning English; I would make them all learn English: and then I would let the clever ones learn Latin as an honour, and Greek as a treat."

" I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals."

Lady Astor: " Winston if I were married to you, I'd put poison in your coffee."
Churchill: " Nancy, if you were my wife, I'd drink it."

Betsy Braddock :" Winston, you're drunk!"
Churchill: " Bassie, you're ugly! But tommorrow I shall be sober."

"Short words are best and the old words when short are best of all."
