English is the result of Norman men at arms trying to get dates with Saxon barmaids and is as legitimate as any other outcome of that activity. - H. Beam Piper

English doesn't borrow from other languages.  It forces them into a dark alley and goes through their pockets. - Unknown

America and England - two cultures separated by a common language. - Attributed to Churchill, or maybe Mark Twain... I've seen both

I'm not the world's most masculine man, but I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man, and so is Lola - Ray Davies, The Kinks, Lola

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers
