Grammar quotes

Thomas Wentworth Higginson
When a thought takes one's breath away, a grammar lesson seems an impertinence.

Ludwig Wittgenstein
Like everything metaphysical the harmony between thought and reality is to be found in the grammar of the language.

Remy De Gourmont
Women are the simple, and poets the superior, artisans of language... the intervention of grammarians is almost always bad.

Ernest Hemingway
My attitude toward punctuation is that it ought to be as conventional as possible. The game of golf would lose a good deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green. You ought to be able to show that you can do it a good deal better than anyone else with the regular tools before you have a license to bring in your own improvements.

Vanna Bonta
There are abundantly more English professors in the world than there are authors.

Elwyn Brooks White
Commas in The New Yorker fall with the precision of knives in a circus act, outlining the victim.

Raymond Chandler
When I split an infinitive, god da** it, I split it so it stays split.

George Eliot
Correct English is the slang of prigs who write history and essays.
