  1. Churchill was such a fascinating man. As you said, no matter the politics, great wit and intelligence. As for favorites, it’s hard to pick one, but I love the quote about the lie getting halfway around the world. And the going through hell quote. That’s a great piece of advice.

  2. “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” << that one speaks to me as a writer.
    "You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life." << LOVED!
    'If you’re going through hell, keep going." Great!
    Very inspiring (and funny!) 😉

  3. Great quotes. My favorites:

    If you’re going through hell, keep going.

    Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    1. The success quote is getting plenty of attention. Wonder why? 😉 Churchill’s democracy comments are great; he also said something about how democracy was the worst form of government except for all other forms of government. It’s the best we got, so we’ll go with it! Thanks, Donna.

  4. If you’re going through hell, keep going- has always been one of my favorites! And I am always amazed at how many awesome things Mark Twain said! 🙂

  5. Freshman year at college as a potential chemistry major, my eye caught a 400-level course entitled “Biographies.” I received special permission to take the course, with my advisor’s warning it would likely be too difficult. Instead, it was the class that won over my heart and made me realize there were other people in the world who loved literature as much as me. I earned an A in the course. Our first book in that class? Winston Churchill’s biography.

    I especially enjoyed #6, #9, and #13. (I imagine #13 is one of your faves, too, being a language geek like me.)

    Great post, Julie! You’ve got me thinking, “What if Hemingway tweeted?” 🙂
