This was the commencement address given by Winston Churchill during World War II. Feb-ru-weary is a time when people give up on their New Years resolutions. The weather sucks the initial excitement is gone and the boredom has set in.
In a 1968 movie entitled "Grand Prix", Jean Pierre Sarte, one of the racers is talking to a journalist and he says that when he sees a wreck on the race course, he pushes down his accelerator because he knows the other drivers are slowing down for the wreck. During February, when everyone else is lifting their foot off the gas pedal and coasting for while, push down your accelerator and move forward.
