A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on achievement, engineering, knowledge, learning, needs, people, study, support, trade, and world

Young people at universities study to achieve knowledge and not to learn a trade. We must all learn how to support ourselves, but we must also learn how to live. We need a lot of engineers in the modern world, but we do not want a world of modern engineers.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on cleverness, honor, learning, and nobility

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 favor of boys learning English; I would make them all learn English: and then I would let the clever ones learn Latin as an honor, and Greek as a treat.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on heart, hope, luck, nations, war, and world

On the outcome of World War II: It was the nation and the race dwelling all 'round the globe that had the lion's heart. I had the luck to be called upon to give the lion's roar. I also hope that I sometimes suggested to the lion the right place to use his claws.
