Winston Churchill Quote
Like a sea-beast fished up from the depths, or a diver too suddenly hoisted, my veins threatened to burst from the fall in pressure. I had great anxiety and no means of relieving it... And then it was that the Muse of Painting came to my rescue - out of charity and out of chivalry... - and said, "Are these toys any good to you? They amuse some people."
