  1. I think the quote you were looking for might be, from James Davis Nicoll ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Nicoll ):

    “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 riffle their pockets for new vocabulary.”
