Higgins: Good-bye, mother. [He is about to kiss her, when he recollects something.] Oh, by the way, Eliza, order a ham and a Stilton cheese, will you? And buy me a pair of reindeer gloves, number eights, and a tie to match that new suit of mine, at Eale & Binman's. You can choose the color. [His cheerful, careless, vigorous voice shows that he is incorrigible.]
Higgins: Happy is the man who can make a living by his hobby.
Higgins: Besides, you shouldn't cut your old friends now that you have risen in the world. That's what we call snobbery.
The English have no respect for their language, and will not teach their children to speak it.
It is impossible for an Englishman to open his mouth without making some other Englishman hate or despise him.
