I go from English to Spanish, and I feel I have some cool songs. ~ Enrique Iglesias
Realtalk English quotes by Enrique Iglesias
In 'Colonization in Reverse'41 (a famous poem much anthologized) the speaker is presented as a more or less reliable commentator who implies that Jamaicans who come to 'settle in de motherlan' are like English people who settled in the colonies. West Indian entrepreneurs, shipping off their countrymen 'like fire', turn history upside down. Fire can destroy, but may also be a source of warmth to be welcomed in temperate England. Those people who 'immigrate an populate' the seat of the Empire seem, like many a colonizer, ready to displace previous inhabitants. 'Jamaica live fi box bread/Out a English people mout' plays on a fear that newcomers might exploit the natives; and some of the immigrants are - like some of the colonizers from 'the motherland' - lazy and inclined to put on airs. Can England, who faced war and braved the worst, cope with people from the colonies turning history upside down? Can she cope with 'Colonizin in reverse'? ~ Mervyn Morris
Realtalk English quotes by Mervyn Morris
I imagine hell like this: Italian punctuality, German humour and English wine. ~ Peter Ustinov
Realtalk English quotes by Peter Ustinov
What senseless violence does is to prolong the lease of life of the British or foreign rule. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Realtalk English quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
I had a real yearning to make use of the opportunities I had at school. When I heard about the gap year of teaching English at a Tibetan monastery, I knew I had to do something about it really quickly, otherwise it was going to get allocated. ~ Benedict Cumberbatch
Realtalk English quotes by Benedict Cumberbatch
The first thing to realize is that it is is a country that is still being imagined. Here every patch of earth has a story, all your places have nuances; if you say Cornwall to an English person, they think of smugglers, and King Arthur and fish. But there are great parts of my country about which American's know nothing beyond an idea of unimaginable vastness. Of course the Indians that live there know the spirits of these places, but that is not the point. You can't imagine how blue the sky is out West, Charlotte. So much space. It's really wild, not like your Lake District with its little stone walls. In the West the landscape is unmarked by man. ~ Daisy Goodwin
Realtalk English quotes by Daisy Goodwin
It would be just as pointless to oppose the international use of English today as it would have been to oppose the worldwide use of French in the 18th century. ~ Maurice Allais
Realtalk English quotes by Maurice Allais
The club is too loud to talk, so after a couple of drinks, everyone feels like the centre of attention but completely cut off from participating with anyone else.
You're the corpse in an English murder mystery. ~ Chuck Palahniuk
Realtalk English quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
It is a well-known fact that English people never know anything. They only think. The only exception they know and they are sure about in the whole world is Marmite. 'Love it or hate it.' There are no other options; there is no space for grey space. ~ Angela Kiss
Realtalk English quotes by Angela Kiss
They taught him how to milk cows and now they expected him to tame lions. Perhaps they expected him to behave like all good lion tamers. Use a whip and a chair. But what happens to the best lion tamer when he puts down his whip and his chair.
Goddamnit! It was wrong. He felt cheated, he felt almost violated. He felt cheated for himself, and he felt cheated for guys like Joshua Edwards who wanted to teach and who didn't know how to teach because he'd been pumped full of manure and theoretical hogwash. Why hadn't anyone told them, in plain, frank English, just what to do? Couldn't someone, somewhere along the line, have told them? Not one single college instructor? Not someone from the board of Ed, someone to orientate them after they'd passed the emergency exam? Not anyone? Now one sonofabitch somewhere who gave a good goddamn? Not even Stanley? Not even Small? Did they have to figure it out for themselves, sink and swim, kill or be killed?
Rick had never been told how to stop in his class. He'd never been told what to do with a second term student who doesn't even know how to write down his own goddamn name on a sheet of paper. He didn't know, he'd never been advised on the proper tactics for dealing with a boy whose I.Q. was 66, a big, fat, round, moronic 66. He hadn't been taught about kids' yelling out in class, not one kid, not the occasional "difficult child" the ed courses had loftily philosophized about, not him. But a whole goddamn, shouting, screaming class ~ Evan Hunter
Realtalk English quotes by Evan Hunter
An Indian child is brought up in England, and he will speak both English and Hindi very well. English in school and Hindi at home. But here it's English both in schools and at home. Why can't you speak Swahili with your child at home? If this continues we will turn into an English speaking country. ~ Enock Maregesi
Realtalk English quotes by Enock Maregesi
The Scots are subsidy junkies whingeing like a trampled bagpipe as they wait for their next fix of English taxpayers' money. ~ Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton Of Brenchley
Realtalk English quotes by Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton Of Brenchley
A mama's boy, loner, intellectual, voracious reader and gourmand, Dimitri was a man of esoteric skills and appetites: a gambler, philosopher, gardener, fly-fisherman, fluent in Russian and German as well as having an amazing command of English. He loved antiquated phrases, dry sarcasm, military jargon, regional dialect, and the New York Times crossword puzzle - to which he was hopelessly addicted. ~ Anthony Bourdain
Realtalk English quotes by Anthony Bourdain
Like the monks chanting their Pali mantras, learning by rote was the accepted method of education just as in English schools of the time. 'In geography,' Sokheang recalled, 'we would have to learn the size of a country, the population, the agricultural produce, etcetera. And we would get called up to recite it to the rest of the class.' The accuracy of this recitation was the measure of a successful student. 'Knowledge,' said Sokheang, 'was the storage of facts. ~ Nic Dunlop
Realtalk English quotes by Nic Dunlop
He may be dead; or he may be teaching English. ~ Cormac McCarthy
Realtalk English quotes by Cormac McCarthy
I grew up in a physical world, and I speak English. The next generation is growing up in a digital world, and they speak social. ~ Angela Ahrendts
Realtalk English quotes by Angela Ahrendts
The English were infuriating. Everything was designed to put an outsider at a disadvantage. If you had to ask, you didn't belong. ~ Daisy Goodwin
Realtalk English quotes by Daisy Goodwin
Only one god. Strange, that you English, who gather about you so many things, are content with one only. ~ Geraldine Brooks
Realtalk English quotes by Geraldine Brooks
I do believe that our modern English usage has become way too clipped and austere. I have been reading excerpts from the journals of 18th-century seafarers lately, and even the lowliest press-ganged deck-swabber turns a finer phrase than I do most days. ~ Geraldine Brooks
Realtalk English quotes by Geraldine Brooks
I really like acting in French. It's actually quite different for me, from acting in English. It's fun acting in a foreign language. You're liberated or freed from preconceptions. ~ Kristin Scott Thomas
Realtalk English quotes by Kristin Scott Thomas
Logos and branding are so important. In a big part of the world, people cannot read French or English
but are great in remembering signs ~ Karl Lagerfeld
Realtalk English quotes by Karl Lagerfeld
For the first time in my life I took to writing things on walls. The passage-ways of several smart restaurants had ' Visca P.O.U.M.!' scrawled on them as large as I could write it. All the while, though I was technically in hiding, I could not feel myself in danger. The whole thing seemed too absurd. I had the ineradicable English belief that they cannot arrest you unless you have committed a crime. It is a most dangerous belief to have during a political pogrom. ~ George Orwell
Realtalk English quotes by George Orwell
English words are like prisms. Empty, nothing inside, and still they make rainbows. ~ Denis Johnson
Realtalk English quotes by Denis Johnson
On daughter Apple's accent: She says Mummy instead of Mommy, I don't mind that. I will if she starts saying basil and pasta the English way, as that really drives me nuts. ~ Gwyneth Paltrow
Realtalk English quotes by Gwyneth Paltrow
The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man. ~ G.K. Chesterton
Realtalk English quotes by G.K. Chesterton
(Claude and Marcel LeFever were speaking in French. This simultaneous English translation is being beamed to the reader via literary satellite.) ~ Tom Robbins
Realtalk English quotes by Tom Robbins
Contemporary fantasists all bow politely to Lord Tennyson and Papa Tolkien, then step around them to go back to the original texts for inspiration
and there are a lot of those texts. We have King Arthur and his gang in English; we've got Siegfried and Brunhild in German; Charlemagne and Roland in French; El Cid in Spanish; Sigurd the Volsung in Icelandic; and assorted 'myghtiest Knights on lyfe' in a half-dozen other cultures. Without shame, we pillage medieval romance for all we're worth. ~ David Eddings
Realtalk English quotes by David Eddings
I went to an English school and was brought up in English. So I don't feel Czech. ~ Tom Stoppard
Realtalk English quotes by Tom Stoppard
Do you speak English?" "Certainly. And I understand American. ~ Robert A. Heinlein
Realtalk English quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
No sooner did the plan let them off at New Caledonia, than Barby found another friend. He was a Kanaka taxi driver, over six feet tall and muscled like a blacksmith, with sooty skin and hair turned yellow from many applications of lime, a standard native treatment for lice. He chewed betel incessantly, which Barby thought was fascinating, since it turned his tongue and lips the color of a ripe tomato. His name, he said in wonderfully bad English, was Henri. He pronounced it 'On-ree. ~ John Blaine
Realtalk English quotes by John Blaine
In English we say 'we are' but it's proper to say 'we are becoming' because things are becoming. ~ Nhat Hanh
Realtalk English quotes by Nhat Hanh
Fee, fie, foe, fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive or be he dead, I'll grind his bones to make my bread." Ballimore shook her head. "Nonsense, dear. It's just Princess Cimorene and the King of the Enchanted Forest." "And neither of us is English," Cimorene added. The ~ Patricia C. Wrede
Realtalk English quotes by Patricia C. Wrede
There may be no more-radioactive term in the English language than what we now almost always refer to as the 'n-word' - itself a coy means of linguistic sidestepping that is a sign of how perilous it is to utter the thing in full, even in conversations about language. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Realtalk English quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
You complain that this stuff is not written in English. It is not written at all. It is not to be read - or rather it is not only to be read. It is to be looked at and listened to. His [Joyce] writing is not about something; it is that something itself. ~ Samuel Beckett
Realtalk English quotes by Samuel Beckett
Hanging on in Quiet Desperation is the English Way ~ Roger Waters
Realtalk English quotes by Roger Waters
You know, I was a kid who had difficulty speaking English when I first immigrated. But in my head, when I read a book, I spoke English perfectly. No one could correct my Spanish. And I think that I retreated to books as a way, you know, to be, like, masterful in a language that was really difficult for me for many years. ~ Junot Diaz
Realtalk English quotes by Junot Diaz
German and Spanish are accessible to foreigners: English is not accessible even to Englishmen. ~ George Bernard Shaw
Realtalk English quotes by George Bernard Shaw
The Ewoks were definitely a challenge of writing 'The Jedi Doth Return.' After having done so many things with characters who don't speak English, how was I going to make them stand out? Jedi is also rich with emotional material, particularly Darth Vader's transformation from the dark side back to the good. ~ Ian Doescher
Realtalk English quotes by Ian Doescher
Prose of the World is an enormously compelling and vivid study. The result is an ambitious, timely, and eloquent account of the relationship between early-twentieth-century fiction and the contemporary global novel in English. ~ Rebecca L. Walkowitz
Realtalk English quotes by Rebecca L. Walkowitz
In Amsterdam there lives a maid (Mark well what I do say) In Amsterdam there lives a maid. And she is the mistress of her trade: I'll go no more a-roving with you, fair maid! A-roving, a-roving, since roving's been my ru-eye-in, I'll go no more a-roving with you, fair maid! British seaman's songearly seventeenth centuryMost seamen's songs and chanties, from the sixteenthcentury on, were highly "permissive" when read aright.They were much bowdlerised in the nineteenth century,and many lost their original honesty and delight. Thisone, innocent except to the seamen's ears, survived.("Torove," is the sailor's term for the weft in canvas. It means"to insert" - "to pass through." "Trade," in English, hasalways had a sexual connotation.) ~ Tristan Jones
Realtalk English quotes by Tristan Jones
The mathematics of Malthus? A quick Internet search led him to information about a prominent nineteenth-century English mathematician and demographist named Thomas Robert Malthus, who had famously predicted an eventual global collapse due to overpopulation. ~ Dan Brown
Realtalk English quotes by Dan Brown
The problem with Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead is that they worked brilliantly in the UK, the US, and Australia; internationally they haven't worked so well because people don't know the films as well as in the English speaking languages. So when it comes to putting the budgets together it's quite challenging. So those are the problems you have. ~ Eric Fellner
Realtalk English quotes by Eric Fellner
The Canadian dialect of English ... seems roughly to be the result of applying British syntax to an American vocabulary. ~ Lister Sinclair
