#1. I grew up having two different perspectives - one in English, one in Spanish. Two different cultures, very different - but I think that, to me, it's one. I'm just as American as I feel Latin. - Author: Prince Royce
Supplice In English quotes by Prince Royce
#2. Stop your bitching, Nick. You should try being an immortal demon who's lived since the dawn of time having to sit through this crap when English is not my native tongue, and if you think you're fluent in it, buddy, I actually know what a gerund is. - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Supplice In English quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Supplice In English quotes by Wadah Khanfar
#6. England and the English governing class never did call on this absurd deity of race until it seemed, for an instant, that they had no other god to call on ... the truth of the whole matter is very simple. Nationality exists, and has nothing in the world to do with race. Nationality is a thing like a church or a secret society. It is the product of the human soul and will; it is a spiritual product. And there are men ... who would think anything and do anything rather than admit anything could be a spiritual product. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Supplice In English quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#7. English is my language because of the history, and what I try to do - and I did that in 'Carpentaria' in particular - is to write in the way we tell stories and in the voice of our own people and our own way of speaking. - Author: Alexis Wright
Supplice In English quotes by Alexis Wright
#8. In living literature no person is a competent judge but of works written in his own language . I have expressed my opinion concerning a number of English writers; it is very possible that I may be mistaken, that my admiration and my censure may be equally misplaced, and that my conclusions may appear impertinent and ridiculous on the other side of the Channel. - Author: Francois-Rene De Chateaubriand
Supplice In English quotes by Francois-Rene De Chateaubriand
#9. and they still control the world, and you are not in my arms. - Author: Adrienne Rich
Supplice In English quotes by Adrienne Rich
#10. The sad truth is, S - , most people are not writers. This has nothing to do with literacy - or intelligence, or general culture. There are people who can correct the grammar, spelling, diction, and style of a college English paper with the best of them - who are still not writers. Indeed, most of what gets published in books, magazines, and newspapers is not written by real writers - which is one reason why so much of it is so bad. - Author: Samuel R. Delany
Supplice In English quotes by Samuel R. Delany
#11. Certainly we do not believe in the present ecclesiastical arrangement called Christmas: first, because we do not believe in the mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be said or sung in Latin or in English; and, secondly, because we find no Scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and, consequently, its observance is a superstition, because not of divine authority. - Author: Charles Spurgeon
Supplice In English quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#12. Hell! His beard grows fast as blazes, like a damp wicket in springtime sun, green, and Rachel's skin is so fine, his bristles can score her red the way a new ball marks a bat, English alum on English unbleached willow, finest quality, special selection, Rachel-grade. Zach, my man, you have cricket on the brain! Thomas has asked him to play on Sunday. Bring Rachel, he said. Thomas 'All Souls' Aubry, gentleman, corinthian at heart, and half French yet more English than a true-born. - Author: Emma Richler
Supplice In English quotes by Emma Richler
#13. In Canada we have enough to do keeping up with two spoken languages ... so we just go right ahead and use English for literature, Scotch for sermons, and American for conversation. - Author: Stephen Leacock
Supplice In English quotes by Stephen Leacock
#14. If you're not a criminal, then what are you doing stealing all these swords and things?" For a moment he was silent. Then he rubbed his chin and said, "There's no name for it in English." "Oh, is there not? 'Burglary' seems descriptive enough." "Kyojitsu." He looked levelly into her eyes, not wavering. "False-true. - Author: Laura Kinsale
Supplice In English quotes by Laura Kinsale

Supplice In English quotes by Chi Chi Rodriguez
#16. As inscribed on John Keats' tombstone:
This Grave
contains all that was Mortal,
of a
on his Death Bed,
in the Bitterness of his Heart,
at the Malicious Power of his Enemies
these Words to be engraven on his Tomb Stone:
"Here lies One
Whose Name was writ in Water."
Feb 24 1821 - Author: John Keats
Supplice In English quotes by John Keats
#17. The New York Times is the worst in that hardly anybody can write English over there. Most of it reads like slight translations from the German. - Author: Gore Vidal
Supplice In English quotes by Gore Vidal
#18. My heart races and I look away. "Well I care. So, write it down. For nine weekends and eight thousand dollars, what's yours is mine including your friends." I throw in a little sarcastic eye flutter. "We're going to be so head-over-heels-in-love. I can't wait to see how romantic you are!"
"Oh no. I refuse to be your kind of bumper-sticker-romantic. Don't mistake me for Mr. Darcy."

I gasp. "You don't know Hunger Games or Forks, Washington, but you know Mr. Darcy? Start talking."

"Crap! My grandmother's a fan. She's tortured me since birth with Mr. Darcy. Thanks to her DVD collection, I can quote Jane Austen faster than the Elmo song."

I laugh, surprised again. "Prove it."

"Elizabeth, daaarling!" He's launched into a breathless English accent. "I love, love, love you, and I never want to be parted from you from this day forward. Pardon me, whilst I puke…"

"No way!" I beam. "Let the contract state that I want the Mr. Darcy accent once a week!" I can't help but laugh again because he's shaking his head and laughing back. - Author: Anne Eliot
Supplice In English quotes by Anne  Eliot
#19. I often find myself privately stewing about much British art, thinking that except for their tremendous gardens, that the English are not primarily visual artists, and are, in nearly unsurpassable ways, literary. - Author: Jerry Saltz
Supplice In English quotes by Jerry Saltz
#20. I couldn't speak English. I'm in kindergarten, and the only reason I got through to first grade is because I cheated. - Author: Louis Zamperini
Supplice In English quotes by Louis Zamperini
#21. When nationalism first became a religion, the English looked at the map, and, noticing that their island lay very high in the Northern Hemisphere, evolved the pleasing theory that the further north you live the more virtuous you become. The histories I was given when I was a little boy started off by explaining in the naïvest way that a cold climate made people energetic while a hot one made them lazy, and hence the defeat of the Spanish Armada. - Author: George Orwell
Supplice In English quotes by George Orwell
#22. If I were forced to compare Tolstoy with Dickens, I should say that Tolstoy's appeal will probably be wider in the long run, because Dickens is scarcely intelligible outside the English-speaking culture; on the other hand, Dickens is able to reach simple people, which Tolstoy is not. Tolstoy's characters can cross a frontier, Dickens's can be portrayed on a cigarette-card. But one is no more obliged to choose between them than between a sausage and a rose. - Author: George Orwell
Supplice In English quotes by George Orwell
#23. It's hard for me to perform in English. - Author: Hiroyuki Sanada
Supplice In English quotes by Hiroyuki Sanada
#24. To my generation no other English poet seemed so perfectly to express the sensibility of a male adolescent. If I do not now turn to him very often, I am eternally grateful to him for the joy he gave me in my youth. - Author: W. H. Auden
Supplice In English quotes by W. H. Auden
#25. It is natural and harmless in English to use a preposition to end a sentence with. - Author: Kingsley Amis
Supplice In English quotes by Kingsley Amis
#26. Well, I'm half Australian, half English and I live in London. That is the only reason I came upon this story. My Australian mother, Meredith Hooper, was invited in late 2007 by some Australian friends to make up a token Australian audience in a tiny fringe theater play reading of an unproduced, unrehearsed play called 'The King's Speech.' - Author: Tom Hooper
Supplice In English quotes by Tom Hooper
#27. I've got a really great team around me. They're the ones that are in the restaurants on a day to day basis. Anyone that's good can't be stifled in any way. I don't baby people. - Author: Todd English
Supplice In English quotes by Todd English
#28. The time is ripe for young Indian authors writing in the English language. - Author: Anurag Shourie
Supplice In English quotes by Anurag Shourie
#29. From time to time, her dialogue will be rendered in ordinary English, which Louise does not speak. To do full justice to her speech would require a ladder of footnotes and glosses, a tic of apostrophes (aphaeresis, hyphaeresis, apocope), and a Louise-ese/English dictionary of phonetic spellings. - Author: Fran Ross
Supplice In English quotes by Fran Ross
#30. Nigeria is not a nation. It is a mere geographical expression. There are no 'Nigerians' in the same sense as there are 'English,' 'Welsh,' or 'French.' The word 'Nigerian' is merely a distinctive appellation to distinguish those who live within the boundaries of Nigeria and those who do not. - Author: Obafemi Awolowo
Supplice In English quotes by Obafemi Awolowo
#31. In stories, you can find out all sorts of things. Did you know that in 1769 the English navigator Captain James Cook sighted Aotearoa (New Zealand)? He landed at Poverty Bay two days later. - Author: Isaac Du Toit
Supplice In English quotes by Isaac Du Toit
#32. To a Soviet person, used to the nationality policy of the USSR, all the mistakes of the American government's Indian policy are evident from the first glance. The mistakes are, of course, intentional. The fact of the matter is that in Indian schools, class is conducted exclusively in English. There is no written form of any Indian language at all. It's true that every Indian tribe has its own language, but this doesn't change anything. If there were any desire to do so, the many American specialists who have fallen in love with Indian culture could create Indian written languages in a short time. But imperialism remains imperialism. - Author: Ilya Ilf
Supplice In English quotes by Ilya Ilf
#33. English was so heavy, so desiccated and hardened by meaning, by pain and anger and even the jests and the petty quibbles, everything under the sun that obscured the basic truth. But the sound of his voice as he spoke to her now, she heard the wind in it, the stillness of the night. Stars above. The things that had kept her going. Always in her memory they had been there. - Author: Meredith Duran
Supplice In English quotes by Meredith Duran
#34. I feel I have a lot to learn from English football and I am completely open to good influences in my way of thinking football. But I also have things to give them. - Author: Jose Mourinho
Supplice In English quotes by Jose Mourinho
#35. Music came first and I started to jam with people I couldn't communicate in their language. Then, because I could make friends thanks to music, they started to talk to me. Then I started to learn English. - Author: Hiromi
Supplice In English quotes by Hiromi
#36. Americanism in all its forms seemed to be trashy and wasteful and crude, even brutal. There was a metaphor ready to hand in my native Hampshire. Until some time after the war, the squirrels of England had been red. I can still vaguely remember these sweet Beatrix Potter–type creatures, smaller and prettier and more agile and lacking the rat-like features that disclose themselves when you get close to a gray squirrel. These latter riffraff, once imported from America by some kind of regrettable accident, had escaped from captivity and gradually massacred and driven out the more demure and refined English breed. It was said that the gray squirrels didn't fight fair and would with a raking motion of their back paws castrate the luckless red ones. Whatever the truth of that, the sighting of a native English squirrel was soon to be a rarity, confined to the north of Scotland and the Isle of Wight, and this seemed to be emblematic, for the anxious lower middle class, of a more general massification and de-gentrification and, well, Americanization of everything. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Supplice In English quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#37. In truth, my Anglophilia is fundamentally bookish: I yearn for one of those country house libraries, lined on three walls with mahogany bookshelves, their serried splendor interrupted only by enough space to display, above the fireplace, a pair of crossed swords or sculling oars and perhaps a portrait of some great English worthy. - Author: Michael Dirda
Supplice In English quotes by Michael Dirda
#38. The word 'aloha,' in foreign use, has taken the place of every English equivalent. It is a greeting, a farewell, thanks, love, goodwill. Aloha looks at you from tidies and illuminations; it meets you on the roads and at house-doors. It is conveyed to you in letters: the air is full of it. - Author: Isabella Bird
Supplice In English quotes by Isabella Bird
#39. Myspace alone has just over 80 million users and ranks as the sixth most popular English language website and the eighth most popular site in the world. - Author: Mike Fitzpatrick
Supplice In English quotes by Mike Fitzpatrick
#40. Pal, if you ever look up the word right in a dictionary, you'll find it's one of the oldest words in the English language. Even so, people have never stopped arguing about what it means. I suspect they always will. - Author: Avi
Supplice In English quotes by Avi
#41. English literature is a glorious inheritance which is open to all - there are no barriers, no coupons, and no restrictions. In the English language and in its great writers there are great riches and treasures, of which, of course, the Bible and Shakespeare stand along on the highest platform. - Author: Winston Churchill
Supplice In English quotes by Winston Churchill
#42. Sylvia Plath"
A miniature mad talent? Sylvia Plath,
who'll wipe off the spit of your integrity,
rising in the saddle to slash at Auschwitz,
life tearing this or that, I am a woman?
Who'll lay the graduate girl in marriage,
queen bee, naked, unqueenly, shaming her shame?
Each English major saying, "I am Sylvia,
I hate marriage, I must hate babies."
Even men have a horror of giving birth,
mother-sized babies splitting us in half,
sixty thousand American infants a year,
U.I.D., Unexplained Infant Deaths,
born physically whole and hearty, refuse to live,
Sylvia ... the expanding torrent of your attack. - Author: Robert Lowell
Supplice In English quotes by Robert Lowell
#43. I would never describe a cloud as 'fluffy' - in Chinese or in English. - Author: Yiyun Li
Supplice In English quotes by Yiyun Li
#44. Christopher Hitchens is the greatest living essayist in the English language. - Author: Christopher Buckley
Supplice In English quotes by Christopher Buckley
#45. What Hamlet suffers from is a lack of zombies. Let us say Rosencrantz and Guildenstern show up - Ho-HO! Now you've got something that stirs the, um, something that stirs things that are stirrable. BOOM! A pack of ravenous flesh-eaters breaks open their heads and sucks out their eyeballs. No need for iambic pentameter because they are grunting, groaning annihilators of humanity with no time for meter. You're not asleep in the back of English class anymore, are you? This is what I'm talking about. Zombies. Learn it, live it, love it. - Author: Libba Bray
Supplice In English quotes by Libba Bray
#46. The English landscape at its finest - such as I saw this morning - possesses a quality that the landscapes of other nations, however more superficially dramatic, inevitably fail to possess. It is, I believe, a quality that will mark out the English landscape to any objective observer as the most deeply satisfying in the world, and this quality is probably best summed up by the term 'greatness.' - Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
Supplice In English quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#47. It is actually a rather sorry tale. In the late nineteenth century most English economists thought that economics was about happiness. They thought of a persons happiness as in principle measurable, like temperature, and they thought we could compare one persons happiness with anothers. They also assumed that extra income brought less and less extra happiness as a person got richer. - Author: Richard Layard
Supplice In English quotes by Richard Layard
#48. It's as if Mom was expressing herself in a language other than English; a language that Grandma wouldn't be able to interpret simply by looking at the music notes. - Author: Tessa Emily Hall
Supplice In English quotes by Tessa Emily Hall
#49. When God creates Eve, he calls her an ezer kenegdo. 'It is not good for the man to be alone, I shall make him [an ezer kenegdo]' (Gen. 2:18 Alter). Hebrew scholar Robert Alter, who has spent years translating the book of Genesis, says that this phrase is 'notoriously difficult to translate.' The various attempts we have in English are "helper" or "companion" or the notorious "help meet." Why are these translations so incredibly wimpy, boring, flat ... disappointing? What is a help meet, anyway? What little girl dances through the house singing "One day I shall be a help meet?" Companion? A dog can be a companion. Helper? Sounds like Hamburger Helper. Alter is getting close when he translates it "sustainer beside him"
The word ezer is used only twenty other places in the entire Old Testament. And in every other instance the person being described is God himself, when you need him to come through for you desperately. - Author: Stasi Eldredge
