THEY DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

41 years ago today, Sir Winston Churchill was laid to rest with full state honors. He died on January 24 after suffering a stroke.

He was the right man at the right time during WWII, always lifting the spirits of the Brits when it looked like the end for them. He always knew history would treat him well:

"History will be kind to me for I intend to write it."

Sir Winston was often quoted. One of my favorites:

"It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required."

His bio is here and a page filled with famous quotes is here.
