10 of Winston Churchill's Best Quotes

1. "I like pigs. Cats look down on you; dogs look up to you; but pigs treat you like an equal."

2. "We have not journeyed all this way across the centuries, across the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because we are made of sugar candy."

3. "History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days."

4. "[I]t has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time."

5. "If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time."

6. "For myself, I am an optimist—it does not seem to be much use being anything else."

7. "Now we have 'adequacy.' What is adequacy? Adequacy is no standard at all. It is simply what His Majesty's Ministers at any given moment, surveying what they have got, choose to say is adequate.

8. "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."

9. "It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time."

10. "In the course of my life I have often had to eat my words, and I must confess that I have always found it a wholesome diet."

As for me, I like # 1 the best.

And then there was his speech in the Canadian House of Commons:
