Winston Churchill was, and still is, known for his sense of humor and witty turns of phrase. Here are a few favorite Churchillian quotes from James C. Humes's charming book, The Wit and Wisdom of Winston Churchill.
On animals: "Dogs look up to you. Cats look down on you. Give me a pig. He just looks you in the eye and treats you as an equal."
On illness: "It is a nuizenza to have the fluenza." (from a letter to President Roosevelt)
On free speech: " Some people's ideas of free speech is that they are free to say what they like but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage."
On opponents: "I like a man who grins when he fights."
On punctuality: "I am a sporting man. I always like to give trains and airplanes a fair chance of getting away."
On stupidity: "Unwisdom prevailed."
