It is clear from the extracts of his (Winston Churchill) speeches that he uses very short, sharp words, “never was so much owed by so many to so few” or “I have nothing to offer you but blood, tears, toil and sweat”. now he could have said ” I have nothing to offer you but sacricfice, labour and perspiration.” “Perspiration” is the Latin word for Anglo-Saxon “sweat”. But it is clear which has the most power to touch feelings and evoke a gut reaction.
