Neville Chamberlain

We should seek by all means in our power to avoid war, by analyzing possible causes, by trying to remove them, by discussion in a spirit of collaboration and good will. I cannot believe that such a program would be rejected by the people of this country, even if it does mean the establishment of personal contact with the dictators.More Neville Chamberlain [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We would fight not for the political future of a distant city, rather for principles whose destruction would ruin the possibility of peace and security for the peoples of the earth.More Neville Chamberlain [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I believe it is peace in our time.More Neville Chamberlain [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

However much we may sympathize with a small nation confronted by a big and powerful neighbours, we cannot in all circumstances undertake to involve the whole British Empire in a war simply on her account.More Neville Chamberlain [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In war, whichever side may call itself the victor, there are no winners, but all are losers.More Neville Chamberlain [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

How horrible, fantastic, incredible, it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas-masks here because of a quarrel in a faraway country between people of whom we know nothing.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In war, whichever side may call itself the victor, there are no winners, but all are losers.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is evil things that we will be fighting against-brute force, bad faith, injustice, oppression and persecution-and against them I am certain that the right will prevail.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Taxation is not a method by which the community corporately provides itself with essential services, but a fund to be divided between different interests with political claims upon the state.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
However much we may sympathize with a small nation confronted by a big and powerful neighbor, we cannot in all circumstances undertake to involve the whole British Empire in a war simply on her account. If we have to fight it must be on larger issues than that...More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We would fight not for the political future of a distant city [Danzig], rather for principles whose destruction would ruin the possibility of peace and security for the peoples of the earth.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I believe it is peace in our time.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whatever may be the reason, whether it was that Hitler thought he might get away with what he had got without fighting for it, orwhether it was that after all the preparations were not sufficiently complete--however, one thing is certain: he missed the bus.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am speaking to you from the Cabinet Room at 10 Downing Street. This morning the British Ambassador in Berlin handed the German Government an official note stating that unless we heard from them by eleven o'clock, that they were prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us. I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and consequently this county is at war with Germany.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Thrift is that habit of character that prompts one to work for what he gets, to earn what is paid him; to invest a part of his earnings; to spend wisely and well; to save, but not hoard.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whatever the lengths to which others may go, His Majesty's Government will never resort to the deliberate attack on women and children and other civilians for purposes of mere terrorism.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Ever since I assumed my present office my main purpose has been to work for the pacification of Europe, for the removal of those suspicions and those animosities which have so long poisoned the air. The path which leads to appeasement is long and bristles with obstacles. The question of Czechoslovakia is the latest and perhaps the most dangerous. Now that we have got past it, I feel that it may be possible to make further progress along the road to sanity.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the event of any action which clearly threatened Polish independence and which the Polish Government accordingly considered it vital to resist with their national forces, His Majesty's Government would feel themselves bound at once to lend the Polish Government all support in their power. They have given the Polish Government an assurance to this effect. I may add that the French Government have authorized me to make it plain that they stand in the same position in this matter.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time... Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Armed conflict between nations is a nightmare to me, but if I were convinced that any nation had made up its mind to dominate the world by fear of its force I should feel it should be resisted.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No doubt the Jews aren't a lovable people; I don't care about them myself; but that is not sufficient to explain the Pogrom.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
This is a sad day for all of us, and to none is it sadder than to me. Everything that I have worked for, everything that I have believed in during my public life, has crashed into ruins. There is only one thing left for me to do: That is, to devote what strength and powers I have to forwarding the victory of the cause for which we have to sacrifice so much... I trust I may live to see the day when Hitlerism has been destroyed and a liberated Europe has been re-established.More Neville Chamberlain [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
