The Classic Pamela Positive: Winston Churchill: We’re Not Made of Sugar Candy

cotton-candy-434810_1280“We have not journeyed all this way across the centuries, across the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because we are made of sugar candy.”

-Sir Winston Churchill

Going through a tough time?  Does the mountain you are climbing seem too steep?

But it’s not just a mountain, and it’s not your mountain only.

You are striving not only for yourself, but also for others.  Whatever you are trying to achieve today, whatever you hope to have in the future, can be used as inspiration for others…

You’re learning from it. Growing from it, and becoming a better person. Don’t give up, you don’t want to do that; Don’t be discouraged, it won’t aid your cause.  You’re not a piece of cotton candy, disintegrating; no, you are firm, resolute, patient.

Your mountain lesson isn’t just for you. It will be an example, a story with which you can encourage others.

Thank you for persevering — the world thanks you!

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) was a British politician and was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, a writer, and an artist. He is the only British Prime Minister to have received the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.  He was born into the aristocratic family of the Dukes of Marlborough, a branch of the Spencer family.  Churchill married Clementine Hozier in 1908 and had five children: Diana, Randolph, Sarah, Marigold Frances, and Mary.
