Wall of Quotes 2


I like this quote a lot. In fact, I think it reflects the Scottish character pretty well. It reminds of my first year at University in Edinburgh. Edinburgh attracts a large number of English students from, shall we say, rather privileged backgrounds. In tutorials, I remember feeling overwhelmed by the English students who just seemed to talk and talk while the Scots listened intensely and spoke when necessary. After a while, you noticed how much hot-air was spouted by the public-schoolboys and girls, and by the end of first year, the Scottish students found their voices.

I love this quote, never a truer word spoken.

Reminds me of west coasters, specifically Oban/Argyll
