Go back to Englishmen's Principles

George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)
Englishmen's Principles

There is nothing so bad or so good that you will not find
Englishmen doing it; but you will never find an Englishman
in the wrong. He does everything on principle. He fights you
on patriotic principles; he robs you on business principles;
he enslaves you on imperial principles; he supports his king
on royal principles and cuts off his king's head on republican

("The Man of Destiny")
