“We shall not fail or falter.
We shall not weaken or tire.
Neither the sudden shock of battle nor the long-driven trials of vigilance and exertion will wear us down.
Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.”
- Churchill on BBC radio broadcast in response to FDR note in which he shared Longfellow “O’ Ship of State” as seen at Churchill: Power of Words exhibit at Piermont Morgan Library
