Famous quotes containing the words open and/or welsh:
“I open with a clock striking, to beget an awful attention in the audienceit also marks the time, which is four oclock in the morning, and saves a description of the rising sun, and a great deal about gilding the eastern hemisphere.”
—Richard Brinsley Sheridan (17511816)
“The populations of Pwllheli, Criccieth,
Portmadoc, Borth, Tremadoc, Penrhyndeudraeth,
Were all assembled. Criccieths mayor addressed them
First in good Welsh and then in fluent English,”
