Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat

Winston Churchill

The most eloquent and expressive statesman of his time - phrases such as iron curtain, business as usual, the few, and summit meeting passed quickly into everyday use - Winston Churchill used language as his most powerful weapon at a time when his most frequent complaint was that the armoury was otherwise empty. In this volume, David Cannadine selects thirty-three orations ranging over fifty years, demonstrating how Churchill gradually hones his rhetoric until the day when, with spectacular effect, he mobilized the English language, and sent it into battle (Edward R. Murrow).

On May 10, 1940, Winston Churchill became Prime Minister. When he met his Cabinet on May 13 he told them that "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat." ...the premiership, Churchill told the British people what to expect: "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat." Blood, toil, sweat, and tears have no place in this sterile, plastic world.
