WINSTON CHURCHILL BRIEF HISTORY AND SOME QUOTES

   BRIEF HISTORY OF WINSTON CHURCHILLWinston Churchill was an inspirational statesman, writer, orator and leader who led Britain to victory in the Second World War. He served as Conservative Prime Minister twice - from 1940 to 1945 (before being defeated in the 1945 general election by the Labour leader Clement Attlee) and from 1951 to 1955.Winston Churchill was born on 30 November 1874, in Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire and was of rich, aristocratic ancestry. Although achieving poor grades at school, his early fascination with militarism saw him join the Royal Cavalry in 1895. As a soldier and part-time journalist, Churchill travelled widely, including trips to Cuba, Afghanistan, Egypt and South Africa.
Churchill was elected as Conservative MP for Oldham in 1900, before defecting to the Liberal Party in 1904 and spending the next decade climbing the ranks of the Liberal government. He was First Lord of the Admiralty (the civil/political head of the Royal Navy) by the time of the disastrous Gallipoli campaign, which he created. Heavily criticised for this error, he resigned from this position and travelled to the Western Front to fight himself.
The interwar years saw Churchill again ‘cross the floor’ from the Liberals, back to the Conservative Party. He served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1924, when he controversially opted for Britain to re-join the Gold Standard. Following the Tory electoral defeat in 1929, Churchill lost his seat and spent much of the next 11 years out of office, mainly writing and making speeches. Although he was alone in his firm opposition to Indian Independence, his warnings against the Appeasement of Nazi Germany were proven correct when the Second World War broke out in 1939.
Following Neville Chamberlain’s resignation in 1940, Churchill was chosen to succeed him as Prime Minister of an all-party coalition government.
Churchill, who also adopted the self-created position of Minister for Defence, was active both in administrative and diplomatic functions in prosecuting the British war effort. Some of his most memorable speeches were given in this period, and are credited with stimulating British morale during periods of great hardship. However, Labour leader Clement Attlee’s unexpected General Election victory in 1945 saw Churchill out of office and once again concentrating on public speaking. In his 1946 speech in the USA, the instinctive pro-American famously declared that “an iron curtain has descended across the Continent”, and warned of the continued danger from a powerful Soviet Russia.
By his re-election in 1951, Churchill was, in the words of Roy Jenkins, “gloriously unfit for office”. Ageing and increasingly unwell, he often conducted business from his bedside, and while his powerful personality and oratory ability endured, the Prime Minister’s leadership was less decisive than during the war. His second term was most notable for the Conservative Party’s acceptance of Labour’s newly created Welfare State, and Churchill’s effect on domestic policy was limited. His later attempts at decreasing the developing Cold War through personal diplomacy failed to produce significant results, and poor health forced him to resign in 1955, making way for his Foreign Secretary and Deputy Prime Minister, Anthony Eden.Churchill died in 1965, and was honoured with a state funeral.
                          QUOTES OF WINSTON CHURCHILL 

"Everyone has his day and some days last longer than others.""We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give".
"Never, never, never quit!"
"A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject"
"When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened."
"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."
"The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see"
"It is a mistake to try to look too far ahead. The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time."
"Mountaintops inspire leaders but valleys mature them"
"All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope."


DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF


A farmer won a first prize at the country fair for his huge radish that was the exact shape and size of a quart of milk bottle. Many were curious as to how the farmer was able to grow this radish that was the exact shape of a milk bottle. 

Finally one gentleman went up to the farmer and asked the question. The farmer replied, "It was easy. I got the seed growing and then I put it into the milk bottle. It had nowhere else to go." 

You can use this story as an analogy to life - our lives are shaped by the kind of surroundings we place ourselves in, the people that we allow to influence us, and the goals we give ourselves. 

These Are Key Ingredients 

If we only dream and take no action then we get no further. But if we plan, set a goal and take action then our life takes a different shape. 

Now, the important parts of goal setting, though, go way beyond just writing down a goal statement and thinking that somehow your goal will be reached. 

To write a goal is only a minor part of the way forward. The rest of the elements of how to reach that goal must also be stated clearly and with a definite time frame to each step. 

This means that you must develop a detailed plan of action where each action step is detailed on what you must do, when and how and how much time it will take. If you do not make your plan detailed in this way and set specific target dates for completion, you will simply not be creating any kind of expectation in your mind or urgency that helps keep you moving.

INSPIRATION QUOTES BY OPRAH WINFREY

You can receive a lot of awards in your life, but there is nothing better, nothing better than being honored by your own.

My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.

I believe that one of life's greatest risks is never daring to risk.

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.

I think that when you invite people to your home, you invite them to yourself.

Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.

Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody's going to know whether you did it or not.

The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work.

Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.

As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around.

Shine within you so that it can shine on someone else. Let your light shine.

Oprah Winfrey
