Quotes by Winston Churchill

'First a mistress you dally and play with, then she becomes your master and finally your tyrant.'

on writing a book

'Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him to the public.'
