Damned If You Do,

and damned if you do not,

that was the situation that American astronaut Scott Kelly found himself in when he used some truly great quotes of one of the greatest men to have ever lived, Winston Churchill, whose quotes landed him in hot water with people who oppose the wartime British prime minister's views on empire and race, so he apologized, and then Churchill fans attacked him for discrediting the politician's record! the wartime leader wrote "In victory, magnanimity" in his book about World War Two to refer to the need for winners of a conflict to show grace, Kelly added: "I guess those days are over", these are just a few quotes that made the man so great,

• “It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.”
• “There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.”
• “To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”
• “To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to change often.”
• “The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.”
• “The price of greatness is responsibility.”
• “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”
• “Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room.”
• “One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.”
• “Personally I’m always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.”
• “Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”
• “Broadly speaking short words are best and the old words when short, are best of all.”
• “Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities because it has been said, it is the quality which guarantees all others.”
• “Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.”
• “History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.”
• “Attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG difference.”
• “Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”
• “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”
• “Everyone has his day, and some days last longer than others.”
• “You have enemies? Good. It means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
