Wise words - do we learn from history?

#1
"In a life and death struggle we cannot afford to have our destinies in the hands of failures or men who need a rest" Attlee PM 1945 – 51


Do these wise words apply to anyone we know? (TCH, Mandelson etc)

But then I could be wrong.

"The great proof of madness is the disproportion of one's designs to one's means". Napoleon
