“The dignity of a prime minister, like a lady’s virtue, is not susceptible to partial diminution.” – Winston Churchill
Here’s today’s tip: “The dignity of a prime minister, like a lady’s virtue, is not susceptible to partial diminution.” – Winston Churchill
As most of y’all know, I’m a huge fan of Winston Churchill. And as soon as I saw this quote from him, its truth resonated with me strongly.
I’d imagine that after hearing the quote, your mind went directly to your opponent or some politician who is guilty of some kind of betrayal. Perhaps it’s through a failure in their personal lives or by something they’ve done within their role as a public official. All of those things factor into what Winston is talking about.
In sum, Churchill is saying that you’re either honorable or you’re not. Virtuous or your not. Possessed of dignity or not.
