It was Winston Churchill. This is the actual quote: To be conservative at 20 is heartless and to be a liberal at 60 is plain idiocy.

He also said this:

Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.
