Kuuluisia englanninkielisiä sitaatteja

Suurin osa englanninkielisistä tuntee seuraavat, kuuluisat sitaatit. Jotkut tulevat kirjoitetusta kielestä (näytelmät, kirjat ja runot), toiset tulevat elokuvista ja osa tulee historian kuuluisilta henkilöiltä. Mitä tahansa näistä voidaan siteerata keskustelussa, kokonaan tai osittain. Ne ovat niin kuuluisia, että pisimmistä sitaateista käytetään usein vain alkua, koska ihmiset tietävät loppuosan. Kun tiedät englanninkielisiä sitaatteja, huomaat että niihin viitataan monessa paikassa. Kuuluisia sitaatteja muokataan monesti hieman tehdäksemme vitsejä, sillä jokainen tuntee sekä alkuperäisen, että muunnellun version. Niitä voidaan käyttää myös vitseinä, kun niitä siteerataan yllättävissä tilanteissa.
