“Dendär Krukrill va no en bra karl”


Sådär sa min mofa förr i tiden. Eller va de min gammelmofa?

Personligen tycker jag inte att han spelade ett rent spel under sin tid som brittisk premiärminister. Han hade gladeligen sett Norden som ett stort slagfält under andra världskriget. Han spelade sina kort dåligt och arrogant mot Tyskland trots att man bara hör om hur han ledde försvaret av de brittiska öarna. Han avskydde en viss Gandhi i Indien och sade sig inte bry sig om hur brutalt England behandlade sin “kronjuvel”.

Men trots allt kunde Winston Churchill verkligen uttrycka sig. Vad sägs om följande citat?

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
Email to a friend A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.
Email to a friend Yes, madam, I am drunk. But in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.
(replying to Lady Astor’s comment ‘Sir, you’re drunk!’)
Email to a friend I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
Email to a friend Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room.
Email to a friend History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
Email to a friend Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into a even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose.
Email to a friend An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile–hoping it will eat him last.
Email to a friend I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
Email to a friend A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

    du glömde det mest kända citatet men det gör inget. Förresten kom ja på att vi har ledigt (alla vi på Uni) först vecka 10. Lite knepigt kanske men vi får se hur de fixar sig.
