A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on country, darkness, god, history, life, and play

Do not let us speak of darker days, let us speak rather of sterner days. These are not dark days: these are great days-the greatest days our country has ever lived; and we must all thank God that we have been allowed, each of us according to our stations, to play a part in making these days memorable in the history of our race.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on anxiety, authors, books, familiarity, good, memory, quotations, study, and work

It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
