An Extraordinary Minute -- Churchill at his Finest

“Never give in - never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

Sir Winston Churchill

This pithy communication is reported to have been the entire text of a speech Sir Winston once gave at a commencement ceremony.

Clearly, in England’s time of greatest need for leadership during World War II, Winston Churchill communicated a stand for “honour and good sense” and never giving in.

Of course, we need to have a purpose noble and compelling enough to summon this kind of stand, this expression of courage. Once we discover it and claim it for our own, all that remains is total commitment, to never, never, never, never...Give in.

Offered with love and respect,

Robert
