Famous quotes containing the word england:

    The New England conscience ... does not stop you from doing what you shouldn’t—it just stops you from enjoying it.
    Cleveland Amory (b. 1917)

    It seemed a long way from 143rd Street. Shaking hands with the Queen of England was a long way from being forced to sit in the colored section of the bus going into downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. Dancing with the Duke of Devonshire was a long way from not being allowed to bowl in Jefferson City, Missouri, because the white customers complained about it.
    Althea Gibson (b. 1927)

    Why should I go to England with her? Because you bid me, or because she wishes it,—or simply because England is the most damnable, Puritanical, God-forgotten, and stupid country on the face of the globe?
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)
