The Sunday Quote

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
As prime minister of Britain from May 1940 during World War II, Churchill roused the British to stand against Nazi Germany. In the years prior to the war during Hitlers rise to power Churchill had stood virtualy alone amongst Politicians fighting the appeasment policy of the British Government. During the War the sight of Churchill, with his cigar and two fingers raised in a “V for victory” salute, inspired Britons to rise to what he called “their finest hour.”
