"Should the invader come to Britain, there will be no placid lying down of the people in submission before him, as we have seen, alas! in other countries. We will defend every village, every town, and every city. The vast mass of London itself, fought street by street, could easily devour an entire hostile army, and we would rather see London laid in ashes and ruins than that it should be tamely and abjectly enslaved." (Winston Churchill)

"We live on an island, right?"

Right, my friend replied.

"We're surrounded by water, right?"

Right again.


"Are we connected to the world?"

The answer to that question is, of course, yes.
