From A.A. Gill of the Times (can't find original article unfortunately):

Anger has driven the English to achievement and greatness in a bewildering pantheon of disciplines. At the core of that anger is the knowledge that they could go absolutely berserk with an axe if they didn’t bind themselves with all sorts of restraints, of manners, embarrassment and awkwardness and garden sheds.

I found it at Language Log, a new interwubs haunt of mine that caters to my paddling in the shallows of Linguistics.
