Here are some quotes I have remembered some are funny some are somber but for sure they are all memorable

Sir Winston Churchill

“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”

“So they [the Government] go on in strange paradox, decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent.”

Abraham Lincoln

“It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues.”

“Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived.”


“The wine urges me on, the bewitching wine, which sets even a wise man to singing and to laughing gently and rouses him up to dance and brings forth words which were better unspoken.”

“You know its funny I was thinking about what you said. The preeminent truth of our age is that you can not fight the system. But if as you say the truth is fluid that the truth is subjective then maybe you can fight the system. As long as just one person refuses to be broken refuses to bow down” “But can you win?” “Every time I say NO”
