A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on action, consequences, destruction, life, uncertainty, and virtue

How little can we foresee the consequences either of wise or unwise action, of virtue or of malice. Without this measureless and perpetual uncertainty, the drama of human life would be destroyed.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on civilization, curiosity, history, honor, mind, nations, peace, war, and world

History's villains are more easily recognized in retrospect. In an article published in 1935 and reprinted in 1937, Winston Churchill expressed a curious ambivalence towards the German chancellor prior to the outbreak of war: We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation. . . .
