“Winston, you’re drunk!”

“Yes, lady, and you are ugly. But tomorrow, I will be sober.”

(Winston Churchill)



1. Odysseus - August 11, 2008

According to wikipedia, said to Bessie (Elizabeth) Braddock.

2. Big Vlad - August 11, 2008

my favourite Churchill quote is this:

lady: Winston, if you were my husband I’d poison your tea.

churchill: madam, if you were my wife I’d drink it.

3. Thomas Larsson - August 11, 2008

Champagne should be dry, cold and free.

4. Nailor - August 11, 2008

My favourite quote of Churchill is this:
“Socialists are like Christpher Columbus: they leave without knowing where they’re going. When they arrive they don’t know where they are. And all this with the other’s money.”

5. Helen ( Tomasso it's Heln in Naperville) - August 12, 2008

Tomasso and all , remeber Winston was a bit ugly physically and arent we all? Also he had emotional and other flaws, as we all do. However not everyone has the insecurity and need to put down anyone that challenges heir superiority. Just a comment from a non intellectual. Thank goodness Winston wasn’t a mother.

Hi Nailor, nice one, but I prefer Big Vlad’s one. Thomas, the same goes with yours.

Dear Helen,
thanks for writing. Is the email you left correct ? I am sorry we lost touch. Yes, we all have our flaws and it may be rude to expose them, but humor goes above everything in my opinion. Churchill’s saying above is extremely funny to me, regardless of its rudeness.

You should check out the many stories attributed to the British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham (some of the Churchill stories were originally Beecham ones). Here’s one,:

(to a cellist):

Madam, you have between your legs an instrument capable of giving the greatest pleasure, and all you can do is scratch it.

Good one db, but a bit -well- particular. Not a quote for all occasions…

A very sensible and wise politician! Too bad that there aren’t too many Winstons like this today.

Hello Lubos, I knew you’d like it 😉
