Winston Churchill was the inspirational Prime Minister of Britain during World War II. During the darkest days of the war, Churchill became famous for his speeches on perseverance. (Perseverance, by the way, means not giving up.)

In one of his most famous speeches, Churchill said, “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never—in nothing great or small, large or petty—never give in except to conviction of honor and good sense.” His advice still applies.
