a quote I heard on Michael Savage's radio show:

Hello,
This is my first time on this site. So please be gentle with a virgin.
A few days ago I heard Michael Savage quote Sir Winston Churchill, I think. The said something like, "First they ignore you. Then they mock you. Then they threaten you. Then you win". Can someone please give me the correct quote.

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

not Sir Winston Churchill, it was actually Mahatma Gandhi


"But each day brings its petty dust our soon-choked souls to fill, and we forget because we must, and not because we will."...Matthew Arnold. [now that's what I call poetic]

Welcome to Quoteland.
I'm only checking in because I am always intrigued by quotations attributed to Gandhi.
The very first hit on a Google search is a wikiquote webpage that provides the quotation attributed to Gandhi in a "disputed" section. They then provide this quotation:
quote:
And, my friends, in this story you have a history of this entire movement. First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. And then they attack you and want to burn you. And then they build monuments to you.
~ Nicholas Klein, (1914 US trade union address)

Don't shoot the messenger. Just passing this on.
