Famous quotes with Grammars

  • At painful times, when composition is impossible and reading is not enough, grammars and dictionaries are excellent for distraction.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  • The violent illiteracies of the graffiti, the clenched silence of the adolescent, the nonsense cries from the stage-happening, are resolutely strategic. The insurgent and the freak-out have broken off discourse with a cultural system which they despise as a cruel, antiquated fraud. They will not bandy words with it. Accept, even momentarily, the conventions of literate linguistic exchange, and you are caught in the net of the old values, of the grammars that can condescend or enslave.
    George Steiner
  • All my plans in private life; all my pursuits; all my designs, wishes, and thoughts, have this one great object in view: . If I write grammars; if I write on agriculture; if I sow, plant, or deal in seeds; whatever I do has in view the destruction of those infamous tyrants.
    William Cobbett
