Famous quotes containing the words inventions and/or british:

    I shall not bring an automobile with me. These inventions infest France almost as much as Bloomer cycling costumes, but they make a horrid racket, and are particularly objectionable. So are the Bloomers. Nothing more abominable has ever been invented. Perhaps the automobile tricycles may succeed better, but I abjure all these works of the devil.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    I think there’s a difference between a gamble and a calculated risk.
    Edmund H. North, British screenwriter, and Lewis Gilbert. Captain Shepard (Kenneth More)
