Citazioni famose in inglese

Queste citazioni sono conosciute dalla maggior parte delle persone madrelingua inglesi. Alcune sono tratte dalla lingua scritta (opere teatrali, libri o poesie), altre da film, mentre altre ancora sono state pronunciate da personaggi storici celebri. Tutte possono essere citate in una conversazione, e quelle più lunghe possono essere riportate anche solo in parte, in quanto sono così famose che vengono riconosciute immediatamente. Le citazioni più famose sono spesso modificate leggermente, per farne una battuta umoristica, in quanto tutti comprendono immediatamente sia la citazione originale sia la versione modificata. Tali citazioni possono anche essere usate fuori contesto per creare delle situazioni comiche e divertenti.
