Winston Churchill carried Britain through World War II. He inspired the public with his oratorical skills, and he took his political enemies down a peg with razor-sharp wit. Churchill used language to his advantage, relying on one-liners to accomplish previously unimagined feats.
Although the former prime minister is known for his famous quotes, he has used the power of speech to burn quite a few innocent bystanders. In fact, Churchill seemed to poke fun at his peers indiscriminately. Even President Franklin D. Roosevelt wasn't spared. Perhaps, Britain's mouthpiece just verbally sparred with people to keep his wits sharp, though. Churchill was known to poke fun at himself on occasion.
