“On one of Churchill’s full moon weekends at Ditchley, Diana Cooper, wife of Information Minister Duff Cooper, told Churchill that the best thing he had done was to give people courage. He did not agree. ‘I never gave them courage, he said. ‘I was able to focus theirs’.” – The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson, page 483
