Any return to order must rely on the virtue of fortitude to carry it to completion. An example of this fortitude is found in a story of Winston Churchill’s commencement address in 1941 at his old school, Harrow.

Churchill made his way to the podium, looked out over the graduating boys and gave this short yet inspiring commencement message, “This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Would that modern commencement speeches would be so inspiring and so short!
