Sir Winston Churchill (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) A noted statesman and orator, he was a British politician known chiefly for his leadership of the United Kingdom during World War II. He is widely regarded as one of the great wartime leaders.

He lived to the age of 91 and the record clear shows that he loved to smoke cigars, one after the other, and he drank copious amounts of booze, his favorite was whisky… Scotch whisky.

Here are some photos of Winston Churchill and some of his great quotes:

“I must point out that my rule of life prescribed as an absolutely sacred rite smoking cigars and also the drinking of alcohol before, after, and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between them.”
~Winston Churchill (1874–1965) British Prime Minister. Said during a lunch with the Arab leader Ibn Saud, when he heard that the king’s religion forbade smoking and alcohol. The Second World War, 1948-54

“Smoking cigars is like falling in love. First, you are attracted by its shape; you stay for its flavour, and you must always remember never, never to let the flame go out!”
~Winston Churchill

“I drink a great deal. I sleep a little, and I smoke cigar after cigar. That is why I am in two-hundred-percent form.”
~Winston Churchill

“I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.”
~Winston Churchill

“The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whisky. By diligent effort, I learnt to like it.”
~Winston Churchill

On champagne he said: “In success you deserve it, and in defeat you need it.”
~Winston Churchill

“I had been brought up and trained to have the utmost contempt for people who got drunk – and I would have liked to have the boozing scholars of the Universities wheeled into line and properly chastised for their squalid misuse of what I must ever regard as a gift of the gods.”
~Winston Churchill

“I said, ‘Forgive me, sir,’ and plucked the cigar out of his mouth. By the time I got back to my camera, he looked so belligerent he could have devoured me. It was at that instant that I took the photograph. The silence was deafening.”
~Yousuf Karsh, recalling the taking of his famous “bulldog” photograph of Winston Churchill
