Quote of the Day

"You can always count on Americans to do the right thing -- after they've tried everything else." - Winston Churchill

Note: For those of you who are not familiar with the life of Winston Churchill, Paul Johnson (one of my favorite historians) has written a wonderful biography of him.  Churchill was a man who saw his own time with perfect clarity and was denied the power to do much about it until the pivotal moment when everything hung in the balance. A fascinating study...


  1. I love that quote!! It is hilarious!! It's so true!

  2. Isn't it? I love Churchill... he said a lot of funny and very true things. :)

  3. We have always admired Churchill. Pity that the
    United States had to get a bong on the head before they would engage in the war. How it must have irked him. I received "Churchill "by Paul Johnson in the mail yesterday. I am looking forward to reading it, after I finish a couple of others.
    Thanks for sharing!
