Never, never, never panic?

Looking for a quote, possibly from Winston Churchill, along the lines of "Don't panic, live life as you have been, etc. etc." May have been in reference to severe bombing in London during WWII (if it was indeed Churchill).

Thanks enfa. Believe it not, Googling "winston churchill calm quote" did not bring that up.

"This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense."

Ahh, I see it wasn't exactly a Churchill quote but more like a government motto.

(To clarify, Keep Calm and Carry On isn't from a Churchill speech. It is great advice for life, though...)

Game warden is correct -- here's a good history of those posters.

You can purchase a copy of the poster at Barter Books.
