Quotes of the Day for 1 December 2003 – Never
When choosing Churchill quotes yesterday, I was surprised by the number of times he used the word "Never." The admonition "Never say never" always seemed good to me, but apparently not to that great orator. Out of curiosity, I searched the database for the term and came up with over 1200 matches! It took a little doing to get it down to this short selection, starting with the quote that aroused my curiosity.
