Never run away - Winston Churchill

This quote was added by maggiemary
One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!

I'm a fan of Churchill, so I tried to look this one up to see what exactly the context was. As far as I've been able to find, this quote has never been properly sourced, so it may be impossible to verify he actually said this.

@j7luke, regardless, I agree with you. If he said this, it was almost certainly referring to a nation or its leader (e.g., Japan/Emperor Hirohito, Germany/Hitler, etc.). You know... as opposed to a blustering locomotive.
