Winston Churchill is probably one of the greatest men in history that people remember of. He was a grand old man,but he had one big weakness— he loved to drink. He was always battling with Lady Astor, who favored prohibition.
One day she came up to him and said, “Winston, you are disgusting. You are drunk!”
He knew that disagreeing with her would escalate the situation and he would ultimately end up defeated. Instead, he agreed and turned everything around.
He said, “Lady Astor, you’re absolutely
right. I am drunk. But you’re ugly. And in the morning, I shall be sober.”
