AS THE SPIRIT DIRECTS

Here are some famous quotes of Sir Winston churchill I came accross,those i liked and am feeling....

Just thought deeply about some and realised it could be taken seriously or un-serously, some of them made sense and still made me laugh......soothing cos I'm quite unhappy....something at work...they say I worry easily....well ,mayb i do.

here goes......

1.Sir, if you were my husband, I would poison your drink. --Lady


Astor to Winston Churchill Madam, if you were my wife, I would

drink it. -- His reply

serves her right in my opinion......"elenu gbongbo"....its no surprise na she talk this second one too...lady astor my foot!she is just an "iya isonu".

2.Lady Astor: "Mr. Churchill, you're drunk!" Winston Churchill:



"Yes, and you, Madam, are ugly. But tomorrow, I shall be sober."

funny cos,being drunk is temporary, u will sleep it over....and the next morning u'd be fine but ugliness?,....except for plastic surgery sha o.



3.Americans always try to do the right thing --


after they've tried everything else.

this is sha better, nigerians ,we will never do the right thing even after we have tried several sorts of shady ways.

4.. History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.

cocky and funny statement....i choose to look at it like this......He is cocky and darn sure of himself that he will make history also, he is mocking  the bias of people who write /say good things about themselves

5.If you have ten thousand regulations, you destroy all respect for the law.

what I think Lagos State is fast becoming a poster-child for......too much tax and laws....the one tht pissed me off most recently is the one of build something on your land or it gets revoked.

6.The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.

yea, i so agree....some people now even say the truth is relative.....its not relative (these are the devil's advocate), its just the distortion...there is only one truth in any situation and it is always thr.

7.An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile—hoping it will eat him last.

bootlickers....hear it, na u the crocodile wey u dey worship...u know that boss in your office....whom u bootlick at the expense of your colleagues,go chop u sef one day.

8.We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

whao, this man to me in the literary world is next to Einstein.DEEP........am sure he was taking a swipe at United Kingdom especially with the crazy tax they pay there.they will soon tax themselves to oblivion.lol.
I imagine a man in the bucket true true....trying to carry himself by the handle and its laughable.

A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.


this reminds me of an adlib in yoruba......"olopa ewo n tepe"

translate to...fine u're a police man.....its bad enuff ure going to charge me for whateva offence u think i've committed,so which one come bring curse ontop of am.....ok ur a fanatic u wont change ur opinions.....fine then shut the hell up!.

them plenty....but i'll stop here my peeps,whts ur two cents?

lest i forget....all tributes to Sir WINSTON CHURCHILL FOR ALL HIS wonderful quotes.bros i bow o.tuale! sir.

Nice quotes. Churchill did have lots of brilliant quotes...but i wonder on the 7th one...cos he did offer up Nigeria (as one of the UKs many colonized countries) to Hitler as an appeasement, to stave off the war...hmm

Numbers 6 and 7 are truthful I've learned from experience. I also believe there is some truth to the first two concerning the lady and her husband. As men, we are led to trust our wives and rightfully so. It's a good thing ... well, it is, unless the wife has somehow flipped the script without notifying us. Ha!
