Famous quotes containing the words shalt, england and/or thou:

    It is the manner of gods and prophets to begin: “Thou shalt have none other God or Prophet but me.” If I were to start as a God or a prophet I think I should take the line: “Thou shalt not believe in me. Thou shalt not have me for a God. Thou shalt worship any d_____d thing thou likest except me.” This should be my first and great commandment, and my second should be like unto it.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    In England we have come to rely upon a comfortable time-lag of fifty years or a century intervening between the perception that something ought to be done and a serious attempt to do it.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)

    Oh Conventionalism, what a ninny, thou art, to be sure.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
