image: we shall never surrender

We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
Winston Churchill

This is an quote from a speech the British Prime Minister, Churchill, made to the House Of Commons during the dark days of World War II,
It has been noted that the most famous passage, beginning “We shall fight on the beaches …” and ending “… we shall never surrender,” consists entirely of words derived from Old English (Anglo-Saxon), except for the word “surrender” — which is derived from Old French. source
