I am leaving London to move to the countryside (Wales to be exact). Can anybody give me a quote to reply to any smart alec who quotes Samuel Johnson to me?

Thanks

"If you lived in London, where the whole system is one of false good-fellowship, and you may know a man for twenty years without finding out that he hates you like poison, you would soon have your eyes opened. There we do unkind things in a kind way: we say bitter things in a sweet voice: we always give our friends chloroform when we tear them to pieces."

George Bernard Shaw from "You Never Can Tell">
