Churchill Wit

Whenever I read the things that Winston Churchill once said I see a man of great wit. Consider the evidence ...

"I have never developed indigestion from eating my words."

"I'm just preparing my impromptu remarks."

"If you're going through hell, keep going."

"He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire."

"A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject."

"Although prepared for martyrdom, I preferred that it be postponed."

Lady: If I were your wife, I would give you poison.
Churchill: Madam, if I were your husband, I would take it!

"We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out."

"We are all worms. But I believe that I am a glow-worm."

"I like a man who grins when he fights."

"Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room."

"I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals."

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

GB Shaw: "I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend.... if you have one."
Churchill: "Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second.... if there is one."
