English Quotes

I need a map of your head, translated into English, so I can learn to not make you frown.

Sir Malcolm Stanley Bradbury

The English are polite by telling lies. The Americans are polite by telling the truth.

Sir Malcolm Stanley Bradbury

The women in my life have all been librarians, English teachers, or booksellers. If they couldn't speak pidgin Tolstoy, articulate Henry James, or give me directions to Usher and Ox, it was no go. I have always longed for education, and pillow talk's the best.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

England is very, very important to me, because in my family the English could do no wrong. When my father picked a mistress, it was always an English girl: if he made her pregnant, she could be shipped back to England and he would not be held responsible. It never happened, but I've made a lot of work called The English Can Do No Wrong.

Louise Bourgeois

Pauline Hanson

The English language is rather like a monster accordion, stretchable at the whim of the editor, compressible ad lib.

Robert Burchfield

I read the greens in Spanish, but putt in English

Chi Chi Rodriguez

Frugality is one of the most beautiful and joyful words in the English language, and yet one that we are culturally cut off from understanding and enjoying. The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.
