Too true. Sounds like Terry Pratchett, but is actually a paraphrase - here is the original quote from James Nicoll. "The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."
Terry Pratchett - quote-Witches were a bit like cats. They didn’t much like one another’s company but they did like to know where all the other witches were, just in case they needed them. And what you might need them for was to tell you, as a friend, that you were beginning to cackle.Source: quoteallthethings.comMore from quoteallthethings.com:Paul Mccartney Quote 3610737Paulo Coelho Quote 3010747Jarod Kintz Quote 9217446 #TerryPratchett #quote #quotation #aphorism #quoteallthethings
