Quotes: Antiquated Linguistics
"Someone who's 70 now was in his teens during the 1950s and in his 20s during the 1960s. That's when a lot of language habits are formed... When I'm 70, I'm probably still going to be saying "wicked awesome", and the amount of irony I put into it will depend entirely on how senile I am by then."
- Bryan Lambert, You Are Dumb

We have been taught to tremble at the terrific visages of murdering janizaries, and to blush at the unveiled mysteries of a future seraglio.
Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, 1788

"How do you manage the telegramophone whilst wearing gentleman's sport gloves? Stop"
— A electronic message received by Old-Timey Strong Bad, The Homestar Runner
