Quotation by Winston Churchill:

Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had ever happened


Winston Churchill     (more by this author)

1874-1965 (Age at death: 91 approx.)

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill (30 NOV 1874 - 24 JAN 1965) was a British politician known chiefly for his leadership during WW2, but he was also an artist, historian and writer. He served as Prime Minister from 1940-45, and from 1951-55. He had a speech impediment, which he overcame, for the most part, in adulthood. As a child, he did poorly in school, for which he was punished. Time magazine included him as one of the 100 most influential leaders in history. (from the wiki, accessed 03-16-10)
