Never Give Up – August 31.2011

Never Give Up!

In October of 1941, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill returned to Harrows, his alma mater, to give a speech. The often quoted story and speech claimed that Churchill stood to his feet and gave this dissertation:
“Never give up. Never give up. Never, never, never give up! ”
And then he sat down.
In reality, he gave a somewhat longer speech, during which these words were included:
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never–in nothing, great or small, large or petty–never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Churchill also quoted Rudyard Kipling that day, “…meet with Triumph and Disaster. And treat those two impostors just the same.”
Though the words were spoken some 50 years ago, they still ring true today.
