“‘Success shouldn’t be remaining, failure shouldn’t be deadly: It’s the braveness to proceed that counts.’ — Winston Churchill”

— Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, in a post on X asserting the tip of his presidential marketing campaign.

There is no such thing as a file of the previous British prime minister, who died in 1965, saying these phrases, according to the International Churchill Society, which options the assertion on an inventory of quotes which might be wrongly tied to Mr. Churchill.

One other quote, “Success goes from failure to failure with out shedding your enthusiasm,” is listed alongside it.

“We are able to discover no attribution for both of these, and you can see that they’re broadly attributed to Winston Churchill,” the organization reports. “They’re discovered nowhere in his canon, nonetheless.”
