"The Americans are identical to the British in all respects except, of course, language."
Oscar Wilde

"Giving English to an American is like giving sex to a child. He knows it's important but he doesn't know what to do with it."
Adam Cooper (19th century)

"We (the British and Americans) are two countries separated by a common language."
G.B. Shaw
No, they ain't makin' Jews like Jesus anymore,
They don't turn the other cheek the way they done before.
