I stumbled upon a quote the other day that I thought was very interesting:

“Wer fremde Sprachen nicht kennt, weiß nichts von seiner eigenen.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Allow me to contrast the elegance of Goethe with something I once heard from a drunk, British tourist:

“Dya foookin’ speak English mate?! AINGLISH?!”

Wow, that Brit’s IQ must be sky-high — did you ask him if he was a few bubbles short on his Guinness?
