News & Opinion: From Churchill's Speeches...

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 10:34 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

In my various book scouring, I ran across this piece of a Churchill speech.
You cannot tell from appearances how things will go. Sometimes imagination makes things out far worse than they are; yet without imagination not much can be done. Those people who are imaginative see many more dangers than perhaps exist, certainly many more than will happen; but then they must also pray to be given that extra courage to carry this far-reaching imagination.
Churchill 1941, Never Give In!
