"Nothing decays like progress, and nothing preserves like neglect."

I would add..."Especially in regards to society."

Another Churchill, to a snotty American liberal woman after she told him "Winston if you were my husband I would put poison in your morning coffee." He Replied " Madam If I were your husband, I would drink it"

This one is obscure but it is one of my all time favorites. As the Americans were retreating after the Battle of Bunker Hill, General Prescott who was in command on the hill encountered General Putnam who did not bring him reinforcements.

Prescott: "Why did you not support me General, with your men?"
Putnam: "I could not drive the dogs up."
Prescott: "If you could not drive them up, you might have LED them up."

She ask me name my foe then, I said the need in some men, to fight and kill their brothers without thought of love or God, I begged her give me horses to trample down my enemy, so eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.
