Winston Churchill:
There may be a war. I grant you that. Nevertheless we shall win.



Ralph Wigram:
How can you say that? It's just mindless optimism.



Winston Churchill:
[nods no] When I was at school, I had a friend called Merlind Evans. And one day we were talking about what we would do when we were grown up. And I don't know why I said this, or, why I thought it, but I said, "One day in the future, Britain will be in great danger, and it will fall to *me* to save London and the Empire."



Ralph Wigram:
Schoolboy fantasy. I wanted to play for England or climb Everest.



Winston Churchill:
[half nod no] My destiny. And I truly believe it.



Ralph Wigram:
You're an extraordinary man, Winston.



Winston Churchill:
I am, I know it.



Ralph Wigram:
Nobody but you could say that sort of thing and expect people to believe it.



Winston Churchill:
Destiny is what I believe in. Destiny commands. We must obey.
