The influence of each human being on others in this life is a kind of immortality.
Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

Before you can inspire with emotion, you must be swamped with it yourself. Before you can move their tears, your own must flow. To convince them, you must yourself believe.
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
So long as I am acting from duty and conviction, I am indifferent to taunts and jeers. I think they will probably do me more good than harm.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
Mountaintops inspire leaders but valleys mature them.
We are all worms, but I do believe I am a glowworm.
Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others
Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
