Never give up

There’s a famous story about Winston Churchill being invited to speak at his old school – the famous Harrow Public School – and the essence of the story is that Churchill stood to his feet before the assembled school and in true Churchillian voice simply said: ‘Never, never, never give up.
Coming from most of us, those words would sound like a platitude. Coming from Churchill, whose whole life had been a series of meteoric rises followed by crushing defeats, and who, despite his many shortcomings, virtually alone rallied the British people to keep on fighting during three years of humiliating defeats, those words carried a weight of authority that still speak to us as we face our life battles.
The Bible puts it this way: ‘Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap a harvest if we don’t give up.’
