You can be a little ungrammatical if you come from the right part of the country.

Robert Frost, poet

Grammar is a piano I play by ear. All I know about grammar is its power.

Joan Didion, author

From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

Winston Churchill, politician

Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.


Grammar schools are public schools without the sodomy.

Tony Parsons, critic

Statistics is the grammar of science.

Karl Pearson, mathematician

Grammar is the grave of letters.

Elbert Hubbard, writer

Sometimes you get a glimpse of a semicolon coming, a few lines farther on, and it is like climbing a steep path through woods and seeing a wooden bench just at a bend in the road ahead, a place where you can expect to sit for a moment, catching your breath.

Lewis Thomas, scientist

From one casual of mine he picked this sentence. 'After dinner, the men moved into the living room'. I explained to the professor that this was Ross's way of giving the men time to push back their chairs and stand up. There must, as we know, be a comma after every move, made by men, on this earth.

James Thurber, comedian

Damn the subjunctive. It brings all our writers to shame.

Mark Twain, author

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

E.B. (Elwyn Brooks) White,

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

Ludwig Wittgenstein, philosopher

We have a Conservative leader that believes in green taxes, that won't bring back grammar schools, that believes in continuing with total open-door migration from eastern Europe and refuses to give us a referendum on the EU.

Nigel Farage, politician

Maybe this will be the beginning of a trend? Flat taxes, cutting foreign aid, a referendum on Europe, grammar schools. Who knows?

Nigel Farage, politician

There were all us baby boomers who had a grammar school education, started to learn, then went on the pill, the whole thing, and so there are today a lot more women writers, editors, producers, and so a lot more women's stories. God, the BBC's practically run by women.

Julie Walters, actress

I don't know the rules of grammar... If you're trying to persuade people to do something, or buy something, it seems to me you should use their language, the language they use every day, the language in which they think. We try to write in the vernacular.

David Ogilvy, businessman

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

Thomas W. Higginson, clergyman

I used to go with him and I'd sometimes play, take over from him. That was my first taste of the music business, I suppose, but I was also in the youth orchestra at Johnston Grammar.

Trevor Horn, musician

It's like learning a language; you can't speak a language fluently until you find out who you are in that language, and that has as much to do with your body as it does with vocabulary and grammar.

Fred Frith, composer

Henceforth, language studies were no longer directed merely towards correcting grammar.

Ferdinand De Saussure, educator

In general, the philological movement opened up countless sources relevant to linguistic issues, treating them in quite a different spirit from traditional grammar; for instance, the study of inscriptions and their language. But not yet in the spirit of linguistics.

Ferdinand De Saussure, educator

The first of these phases is that of grammar, invented by the Greeks and carried on unchanged by the French. It never had any philosophical view of a language as such.

Ferdinand De Saussure, educator

I studied at a grammar school and later at the University of Vienna in the Faculty of Medicine.

Karl von Frisch, scientist

You see so many movies... the younger people who are coming from MTV or who are coming from commercials and there's no sense of film grammar. There's no real sense of how to tell a story visually. It's just cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, you know, which is pretty easy.

Peter Bogdanovich, director

I went to the local schools, the local state primary school, and then to the local grammar school. A secondary school, which technically was an independent school, it was not part of the state educational system.

John Hume, politician

It's really difficult for me. Language, I am sorry that I haven't. I think I just always expected that you learn a word in place of a word and when I discovered how difficult the grammar was and learning that was very discouraging for me.

Bo Derek, actress

I remember a moment when the Prince went back to his old school, Grammar School in Melbourne, and slightly to his horror his old music teacher produced a cello.

Anthony Holden, journalist

At age 11 in 1960, I moved to an academic state secondary school, Harrow County Grammar School for Boys.

Paul Nurse, scientist

Let schoolmasters puzzle their brain, With grammar, and nonsense, and learning, Good liquor, I stoutly maintain, Gives genius a better discerning.

Oliver Goldsmith, poet

His eyes so dim, so wasted each limb, that, heedless of grammar, they all cried, that's him!

Richard Harris Barham, comedian

Thurber was asked by a correspondent: Why did you have a comma in the sentence, 'After dinner, the men went into the living-room'? And his answer was probably one of the loveliest things ever said about punctuation. This particular comma, Thurber explained, was Ross's way of giving the men time to push back their chairs and stand up.

Lynne Truss,

What that book does for me is give me the tools in the same way that I had the tools when I learned the regular scales or the alphabet. If you give me the tools, the syntax, and the grammar, it still doesn't tell me how to write Ulysses.

David Baker, composer

No iron can pierce the heart with such force as a period put just at the right place.

Isaac Babel, journalist

Spel chekers, hoo neeeds em?

Alan James Bean,

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.

Ernest Hemingway, novelist

Grammar, which can govern even Kings.


The writer who neglects punctuation, or mispunctuates, is liable to be misunderstood for the want of merely a comma, it often occurs that an axiom appears a paradox, or that a sarcasm is converted into a sermonoid.

Edgar Allan Poe, writer

I never made a mistake in grammar but one in my life and as soon as I done it I seen it.

Carl Sandburg, poet
