It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and prove it.

We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.

Famous quote. I think it's by David Crystal, but I'm not sure.

According to Wikipedia, a guy called James Nicoll.

I'm sure I didn't get it from him. Someone must have quoted him without attribution.
