"In his later years, Winston Churchill gave a speech at the English Prep School he attended as a boy. The headmaster told the boys, 'This is a historic moment. Winston Churchill is the greatest speaker of the English language. Write down everything that he says. He will make an unforgettable speech.'
When Churchill walked out to give his speech, he peered over the top of his glasses and said: 'Never! Never! Never! Never! Give up!' With that, he sat down...
It was that attitude that inspired England in WW II to continue fighting when others might have surrendered.
Persistence means sticking to your guns..."
