“…. this universal love and practice of poetry in Wales is inseparable from the language itself. Your language is, therefore, something more than words on your lips. It is life-blood of your peculiar culture.”

Unknown English journalist, 1939.

“I think we are fast approaching the time when the United Nations should start to think seriously about abolishing other languages. What’s the point of Welsh for example? All it does is provide a silly maypole around which a bunch of hotheads can get all nationalistic.”

Jeremy Clarkson, 2011.
