'Oh, where are you going to, all you Big Steamers, With England's own coal, up and down the salt seas?'
'We are going to fetch you your bread and your butter, Your beef, pork, and mutton, eggs, apples and cheese.'
Oh! The roast beef of England, And old England's roast beef!Henry Fielding
England's not a bad country. It's just a mean, cold, ugly, divided, tired, clapped-out, post-imperial, post-industrial slag-heap covered in polystyrene hamburger cartons.Margaret Drabble
If I should die, thinkonly this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England. There shall be In that rich dust a richer dust concealed; A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware, Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam, A body of England's, breathing English air, Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
God! I will pack, and take a train, And get me to England once again! For England's the one land,I know, Where men with Splendid Hearts may go.
England's on the anvilhear the hammers ring Clanging from the Severn to theTyne!
England's chief defence depends upon the navy being always ready to defend the realm against invasion.
England's difficulty is not Ulster's opportunity. However we are treated, and however others act, let us act rightly. We do not seek to purchase terms by selling our patriotism.
No: by the names inscribed in History's page,Names that are England's noblest heritage,Names that shall live for yet unnumbered yearsShrined in our hearts with Cressy and Poictiers;Let wealth and commerce, laws and learning die,But leave us still our old nobility.
New England's dead. New England's dead!On every hill they lie;On every field of strife, made redBy bloody victory.isaac mclellan
The alembic of English tolerance has operated by now on the newer arrivals as well. Their sons have taken part in English life, contributed to English achievement, striven for England's betterment, shed their blood in England's wars.cecil roth
Far from New England's blustering shore,New England's worm her hulk shall bore,And sink her in the Indian seas,Twine, wine, and hides, and China teas.Henry David Thoreau
That, by the accident of an illegality in the codicil to his will, it should have been possible for Hugh Lane's pet collection to be snaffled by the British Government, is a fitting conclusion to the shabby story of England's appreciation of French impressionist painting.frank rutter
Norman saw on English oak. On English neck a Norman yoke; Norman spoon to English dish, And England ruled as Normans wish; Blithe world in England never will be more, Till England's rid of all the four.walter scott
Lord ope the King of England's eies.william tyndale

I will not cease from mental fight, not shall my sword sleep in my hand. Till we have built Jerusalem, in England's green and pleasant land.william blake
England's innermost truth and at the same time her most valuable contribution to the assets of the human family is the "gentleman", rescued from the dusty chivalry of the early Middle Ages and now penetrating into the remotest corner of modern English life. It is an ultimate principle hat never fails to carry conviction, the shining armour of the perfect knight in soul and body, and the miserable coffin of poor natural feelings.

O Dormer, how can I behold thy fate, And not the wonders of thy youth relate; How can I see the gay, the brave, the young, Fall in the cloud of war, and lie unsung! In joys of conquest he resigns his breath, And, filled with England's glory, smiles in death.joseph addison
For this is England's greatest son, He that gain'd a hundred fights, And never lost an English gun.Alfred Tennyson
