30 caustic wisdoms Winston Churchill

At home he called "the greatest Briton in history." Around the world, he was known as a cunning and shrewd politician, postrelivat opponents in one-liners. It seems that in the morning he and his shirt and jacket put on the insolence and obstinacy.

By the 140th birthday of one of the most influential people of the XX century, we have collected for you his wise and sharp remarks. We ask you to be careful not to cut yourself.

Self-irony

It is easier to manage a nation, than to raise four children.

In my youth, I made it a rule not to drink a drop of alcohol before lunch. Now that I am no longer young, I keep the right not to drink a drop of alcohol before breakfast.

My tastes are simple. I can easily settle for the best.

I have always followed the rule: do not run, if you can stand; do not stand if you can sit; do not sit when you can lie down.

All I wanted - this is consistent with my desires after a constructive discussion.

Politics

Democracy - the worst form of government. Except for all the others.

The politician must be able to predict what will happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And then explain why it did not happen. Congenital malformation of capitalism - the unequal distribution of wealth; the inherent dignity of socialism - the equal distribution of poverty.

In my country officials are proud of the fact that they are the servants of the state; be it the owner would be considered a disgrace.

Diplomat - a person who will think twice before you say anything.

I never criticize the government of his country, while abroad, but it is more than repaying in returning.

History written by the victors.

If the truth is multifaceted, it lies polyphonic.

Save money - a good thing, especially if you have already done your parents.

Optimism

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity.

Improved - means to change, to be perfect - it means change frequently.

Look too far ahead - short-sighted.

Smart people do not make all the mistakes yourself - it gives a chance to both.

It is always easier to express their principles than to implement them.

There is no better investment than an investment in the milk of infants.

Success - is the ability to move from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.

From the experience of great things I learned that trying to settle everything at once is often a mistake.

You will never reach your destination if you throw stones at every dog ​​that barks.

I'm an optimist. I do not see much use to be something else.
