People We Like to Quote: Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

The Right Honourable  Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965) KG OM CH TD PCc DL FRS RA,  was a military hero and British politician who served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955.  ( Wikipedia )


I take your point Sir Churchill.  Your reference to "hell" is a descriptive term, a figure of speech to describe an horrific ordeal that someone is enduring and they must stay strong, persevere and keep pushing forward in order to overcome.

However, with regard to the real hellNobody goes through it.  If they end up there it's their final destination.  They can't escape and they can't turn back.  They can't complain that there was an error in their travel itinerary and that they had been dropped off at wrong place!  They can't even bribe whoever put them in there to let them back out.  For one thing, if they were rich, they were not able to bring their money with them.  Ask the Pharoahs or ask Paul.  Also, the living whom they left behind can't pay for them to get out of hell either through a convenient system of indulgences.  (Geez!  And you think insurance in America is a rip off!)

Churchill quotes are food for thought.  

If I were setting up my own personal private library, I would make sure to have at least one book on the shelf with his quotes. đź“•đź“•
