We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and the oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender. -Winston Churchill

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
- Mark Twain

It is better to deserve honours and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.
- Mark Twain

Get your facts first, and then you can distort 'em as much as you please.
- Mark Twain
