Famous quotes containing the word english:
“To write or even speak English is not a science but an art. There are no reliable words.... Whoever writes English is involved in a struggle that never lets up even for a sentence. He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and, above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.”
—George Orwell (19031950)
“The Communism of the English intellectual is something explicable enough. It is the patriotism of the deracinated.”
—George Orwell (19031950)
“The English have all the material requisites for the revolution. What they lack is the spirit of generalization and revolutionary ardour.”
—Karl Marx (18181883)
