Henry David Thoreau

"When I read some of the rules for speaking and writing the English language correctly, I think any fool can make a rule, and every fool will mind it."

George Bernard Shaw

"England and America are two countries separated by the same language."

H.P.Lovecraft

"If I could create an ideal world, it would be an England with the fire of the Elizabethans, the correct taste of the Georgians, and the pure ideals of the Victorians."

W.H.Auden

"You know there are no secrets in America. It's quite different in England, where people think of a secret as a shared relation between two people."
