The perception of great truths

“The dominant forces in human history have come from the perception of great truths and the faithful pursuance of great causes.” 

A Winston Churchill quote from 65 years ago today, pointing out that human history owes much to those who can see great truths and are prepared to stand up for them.

For Churchill’s full speech (on the importance of a united Europe), see: House of Commons Hansard 28 March 1950, col.189ff .
