Never Give In...

"This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour
and good sense. Never yield to force; never

yield to the apparently overwhelming might

of the enemy."​​

Sir Winston Churchill
Harrow School, 29 October 1941
