The Churchill Society
London.

"Of all the talents bestowed upon men, none is so precious as the gift of oratory.
He who enjoys it wields a power more durable than that of a great king".

"The English language is one of our great sources of inspiration and strength,
and no country, or combination, or power so fertile and so vivid exists anywhere in the world".

"Naturally I am biased in favour of boys learning English;
and then I would let the clever learn Latin as an honour and Greek as a treat.
But the only thing I would whip them for is not knowing English.
I would whip them hard for that.

All the above quotations
are by

Winston Churchill.
