    My rule of life prescribed as an absolutely sacred rite smoking cigars and drinking alcohol before, after and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between them.


    My wife and I tried two or three times in the last 40 years to have breakfast together, but it was so disagreeable we had to stop.

    George did smoke cigars but not good ones. This person did work for a fellow named George.

    One of the more obscure things he said.

    "Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put."

    He had a way with words.




    "There are two things that are more difficult than making an after-dinner speech: climbing a wall which is leaning toward you and kissing a girl who is leaning away from you."


    He also said -- "There is no such thing as a good tax."




    Hint! He was an American citizen.

    Dang...I really hate to even mention his name but it sounds like something Bill Clinton would/should have said.

    The preposition one is often attributed to Churchill.

    Don't know about the others.

    Churchill. His mother was an American. Which meant he was also an American, if he chose to be. Later honored as such. He also worked for King George. A quart of Brandy and 12 cigars a day (big one's). Still lived to be in his eighties. A real man......

    It was Winston Churchill.

    Why don't we have inspirational leaders now?
