A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on enemies, power, time, war, and world

On the night of the 10th of May [1940], at the outset of this mighty battle, I acquired the chief power in the State, which henceforth I wielded in ever-growing measure for five years and three months of world war, at the end of which time, all our enemies having surrendered unconditionally or being about to do so,I was immediately dismissed by the British electorate from all further conduct of their affairs.

Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
