Quotes about English language origin

posted by .

So I wanted to start my etymology paper about fascinating word origins with a quote as my attention grabber. I am looking for a quote that talks about the english language and the origin of most of its words. Some interesting quote. I don't even know if there is a type of quote like that but I looked on BrainyQuotes and all of the quotes arent really about word origins. Sorry if this is confusing!
