Sir Winston Churchill, A Man Of Honor

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.
Sir Winston Churchill, Speech, 1941, Harrow School
British politician (1874 - 1965)
Sir Winston Churchill was a great and heroic man. He was a man who stood by his word, who faced great evil and vowed to fight it with tenacious determination. These qualities are diminished in today's culture. When the going gets tough many men decide to give up or make the decision to take the lesser road, the one without honor and sacrifice.

It is time for men to take a stand against unethical practices whether it is in the workplace or within their personal relationships. Acquiescing to unsavory business practices so as to keep or advance one's career is not what a man of honor does. He does not sabotage a colleague to make himself look good. An honorable man keeps promises and commitments to his friends and family. If there is a rough patch in his marriage he makes sacrifices and does everything possible to save it because he vowed to. This is a guy who comes through when people need him, even if it is difficult or inconvenient. He defends the downtrodden, fights for freedom and loves his country.

One needs only to pick up a newspaper or watch the news to know that there is great evil in this world. That is why we need great men to come together and stand bravely against it.


  1. Never, never, never give in, unless it is your wife. She is probably correct.

  2. You are a wise man Road Dawg. It must come from many years of experience.
