On the Continent people have good food; in England people have good table manners.
Many Continentals think life is a game; the English think cricket is a game.
An Englishman, even if he is alone, forms an orderly queue of one.
In England only uneducated people show off their knowledge; nobody quotes Latin or Greek authors in the course of conversation, unless he has never read them.
The world still consists of two clearly divided groups: the English and the foreigners. One group consists of less than 50 million people; the other of 3,950 million. The latter group does not really count.
