“All slang is metaphor, and all metaphor is poetry.”
G. K. Chesterton
“The one stream of poetry which is continually flowing is slang.”
(internet slang: 'Thank You, I'll Share' your post)”
“Slang is a language that rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands, and goes to work”
“The downtrodden, who are the great creators of slang.”
“I let the cast improvise a lot, especially with the slang, where they would say 'g and t' for gin and tonic. I wouldn't say that. I would say 'dicey' when they would say 'dodgy.' I learnt a lot.”
“I know only two words of American slang, 'swell' and 'lousy'. I think 'swell' is lousy, but 'lousy' is swell.”
J. B. Priestley
