Not to be out done

I have noticed a plethora of quotes floating around today, so I thought I'd jump in.
This is one of my favorites.

"The problem with defending the purity of the English language, is that
English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words;
on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them
unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."
