Famous quotes containing the word england:

    The most serious charge which can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.
    Joseph Wood Krutch (1893–1970)

    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)

    The real weakness of England lies, not in incomplete armaments or unfortified coasts, not in the poverty that creeps through sunless lanes, or the drunkenness that brawls in loathsome courts, but simply in the fact that her ideals are emotional and not intellectual.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
