  • $\begingroup$ As a side note: According to Wikiquote the second quote is often misattributed. $\endgroup$ – Sleafar Aug 24 '16 at 17:24
  • $\begingroup$ @Sleafar Interesting. Nonetheless, when we know the kind of man Churchill was, we can understand why the latter one is the most remembered :) $\endgroup$ – IAmInPLS Aug 25 '16 at 9:49
  • $\begingroup$ @IAmInPLS Does that invalidate your puzzle or what? $\endgroup$ – Buffer Over Read Oct 5 '16 at 0:08

The quotes are:


1.

'When diplomacy ends, war begins' - Adolf Hitler

2.

'History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it' - Winston Churchill

3.

'Ideas are far more powerful than guns. We don't let our people have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?' - Joseph Stalin

4.

'The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs' - Charles de Gaulle

5.

'We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future' - Franklin D. Roosevelt

They are all quotes from:

The leaders of powers in WWII (1939-45):

Adolf Hitler - Leader of the Nazi Party and Chancellor of Germany (1933-45)
Winston Churchill - Prime Minister of Great Britain (1940-45/51-55)
Joseph Stalin - Leader of the Soviet Union (1920(s) -53)
Charles de Gaulle - Leader of France (1940-44)
Franklin D. Roosevelt - US President (1933-45)

Which is why it is part of the Fortnightly Topic Challenge
