Too Much Information

My attitude toward London's museums has gone through quite a cycle here. First, I was pretty much just clueless. I had no idea this city offered so much -- I think there's a museum for everything. Then I hit the excitement stage. My first experience with it all was the Natural History Museum, and I completely loved it. After a whole day of exploring it, I looked at a map and saw I had hardly made a dent. That was when I hit the overwhelmed kind of feeling. There's just so much, I had no idea how I was going to take in everything I wanted to. But now, I think I've finally reached the point of simple appreciation. I'll never see everything there is to see here, but I'll love the things I catch. Here is the museum that took my Monday, and it's one of my favorites so far. The life, personality, and actions of Winston Churchill are fascinating -- but it's his words that probably top the list for me. Here are some of my favorite quotes from him:

"I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else."

"The main vice of capitalism is the uneven distribution of prosperity. The main vice of socialism is the even distribution of misery."

"It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see."

"My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me."

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."

"To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often."
