This has always been my favorite quote so I was elated to see this image posted up on a fellow breast cancer fighter's facebook wall. 

I wanted to share the story behind this simple but powerful declaration by Winston Churchill.

Story goes: Churchill said this on October 29, 1941, when he visited Harrow School. It was after the Blitz and things were looking up a bit for Britain.

"What we have gone through in this period of ten months, this is the lesson: Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never -- in nothing, 
great or small, large or petty -- never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. 

Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."
