Stiff Upper Lip

Squeezed July 8, 2005

Winston Churchill, October 29, 1941:

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.

Tony Blair, July 7, 2005:

We will show, by our spirit and dignity, and by our quiet but true strength that there is in the British people, that our values will long outlast theirs. The purpose of terrorism is just that, it is to terrorize people, and we will not be terrorized.

Stiff upper lip, boys. That’s the spirit.
