„We have above all to learn what is to bear and forbear-to bear ridicule, insults, even personal injuries at times, and forebear from returning abuse for abuse. In the words of the Prophet of Nazareth, we have to take up the cross, not because it is pleasant to be persecuted, but because the pain and injury are as nothing by the side of the principle for which they are endured.“

—  Mahadev Govind Ranade, In one of his lectures delivered at Ferguson College in a social conference of the Congress as a counter to the one held by the extremist Tilak group. Quoted in pages= 113

This remark referring to Charles de Gaulle was actually made by General Edward Louis Spears, Churchill's personal representative to the Free French. Film producer Alexander Korda asked Churchill in 1948 if he had made the remark, he replied No, I didn't say it; but I'm sorry I didn't, because it was quite witty … and so true! Quoted in Nigel Rees, Sayings of the Century p. 105.
