  1. I do believe that Winston Churchill, along with Mark Twain, are 2 of the most quotable folks ever. But you already knew that about Mark, didn't you?

    My favorite story about Winston Churchill is this - George Bernard Shaw and Winston weren't exactly big fans of each other. Apparently a new play by Shaw was opening in London. Shaw sent Churchill 2 tickets and a note. The note basically said 'bring a friend - if you have one.' Churchill's reply - 'I can't make it to opening night, but I'll come on the second night - if there is one.' Great stuff.

    1. I always liked the story where he was arguing with some battleaxe, and she said, Sir, Winston, if you were my husband, I'd poison you! To which he replied, Madame, if you were my wife, I'd drink it!
