Victory (勝利)

We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering.


You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.


You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: victory. Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.


Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister

溫斯頓‧邱吉爾 (1874-1965) 曾擔任兩屆英國首相,因第二次世界大戰領導英國而聞名。這段話出自邱吉爾於 1940 年 5 月 13 日對下議院的演講 Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat (熱血、辛勞、眼淚和汗水),聲音檔也是邱吉爾本人的聲音,時值第二次世界大戰期間納粹德國入侵法國。
