Big Bertha Thing general

A general told his troops, before the big battle, "Right lads,
we are outnumbered 4 to 1, but we are much better than them,
so we should win through in the end!"

Half-way through the battle he sees one of his men
leaning against a tree smoking. He rushes up to him,
calls him all the names under the sun
and asks him what he thinks he is doing?
He replied "I have already killed my four."
Try not to turn the minimum requirements,
into the maximum of your endeavour.

Big Bertha Thing indomitable

(1938) about biography of Lord Grey of Falloden

Lord Grey of Falloden sprang from a Northumberland family of country
who for generations had played a part in public affairs.
His own pleasures lay in the country, but his sense of duty drove him
into politics.
He was happiest fishing for trout, and watching wild birds,
but once he was a member of parliament his abilities and character
won for him a prominence that gave him little time for such pursuits.
From 1905 to 1916 Lord Grey was Foreign Secretary.
It is strange that the man whose heart was never entirely in politics
should have risen to such a high office, should have held it so long,
and in such crucial years.

It is possible to consider Lord Grey's life as a failure.
His sense of duty prevented him from living the life he loved.
His efforts to preserve the peace of Europe suffered the defeat of
August 1914,
that darkened the rest of his life.
He sacrificed his eyesight in his wartime service in the government.
When at last release came, and he returned to his birds and books,
he could no longer see them. Domestic griefs beset him.
Yet as our extract from his biography shows,
from this tragic material his serene and strong nature
won a greatness that is an inspiration and splendid example.(Two
extracts follow)

He was equally cut off from books, of which as life advanced he had
scarcely less fond.

I classify the different parts of my body as being
of different ages, as thus:
99 Sense of smell
95 Eyes
85 Stomach
56 Sense of Hearing (My age)
56 Brain
45 Heart and lungs
It makes an unequal team to get along with.
