Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

“First, do not deal in shams. Second, if it is known that you do not mean to fight, and will do nothing which forces the other side to attack you, it is better not to take a leading part in fierce quarrels.”

  • From Winston Churchill’s 1936 speech, “Why Sanctions Failed,” in Winston S. Churchill Step By Step: Political Writings 1936-1939 (Bloomsbury Publishing, 2015).
