Merit Judges

One day, one of Winston Churchill's bodyguards, who shared the prime minister's love of painting, showed him a few of his canvases. "They're much better than mine," Churchill remarked, "but yours will have to be judged on merit."

[In 1950 Churchill sold 18 canvases to Hallmark cards for reproduction on greeting cards. The proceeds were donated to Churchill College, Cambridge.]
