Never give up!

Many people misquote Winston Churchill.  They think he said something brief like, "never give in!" Well, he did ... sort of. Sir Winston Churchill actually said something much more motivating than that.

The year was 1941.  Churchill was giving a speech on October 29th at Harrow School. The incorrect versions of his never give in-speech suggested he was at Oxford or Cambridge. Nope.  In fact, Churchill made annual visits at the school until 1961.

Here are the amazing words of Winston Churchill.

"This is the lesson: 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 honour and good sense.  Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."

Now while the picture accompanied might seem a little, well, flippant, yet it has powerful meaning nonetheless.

Even when you think you're defeated, remember ... never give in!  Never give up!
