Native English

Famous quotes containing the words native and/or english:

    It is fair to assume that when women in the past have achieved even a second or third place in the ranks of genius they have shown far more native ability than men have needed to reach the same eminence. Not excused from the more general duties that constitute the cement of society, most women of talent have had but one hand free with which to work out their ideal conceptions.
    Anna Garlin Spencer (1851–1931)

    The English Bible—a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.
    Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859)
