A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on babies, learning, mortality, parliament, politics, proof, statistics, and wishes

I gather, young man, that you wish to be a Member of Parliament. The first lesson that you must learn is, when I call for statistics about the rate of infant mortality, what I want is proof that fewer babies died when I was Prime Minister than when anyone else was Prime Minister. That is a political statistic.

Decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent. Of Stanley Baldwin's policies.
