England Quotes

Cameron Diaz

This England never did, nor never shall, Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror, But when it first did help to wound itself.

William Shakespeare

England or the Great Britain as it is known more popularly is a land which has for long been a home to people belonging to a number of different cultures and races. The tolerance that it has for different people is in itself immense. Today it also holds the position of the financial capital of the world and is also a part of the European Union. It has for long been a colonial power which has ruled over many nations. It is home for the famous Queen Elizabeth and her descendants. With splendid country sides and cold weather, it is a very much sought after destination by the youth of the Asian countries.In spite of their hats being very ugly, Goddam! I love the English.

Hon. Sir George Eulas Foster

To me, England is the country, and the country is England. And when I ask myself what I mean by England when I am abroad, England comes to me through my various senses through the ear, through the eye and through certain imperishable scents ... The sounds of England, the tinkle of the hammer on the anvil in the country smithy, the corncrake on a dewy morning, the sound of the scythe against the whetstone, and the sight of a plough team coming over the brow of a hill, the sight that has been seen in England since England was a land ... the one eternal sight of England.

Stanley Baldwin, 1st Earl Baldwin of Bewdley
