Help! Like the accountant who can't balance his [yes, I'm for the generic
"he"] own checkbook, I've lost the source of the following quote, which I
plan to use in a display this weekend. Is it William Safire?

"The English language is not the King's engligh, or the grammarian's
english, but the english-speaking world's english -- to be fought for and
fought over by all who find joy in the world of words."

[Don't worry about uppercase or lowercase "english" -- the display will
be in all uppercase.]

Any clues would be much appreciated. TIA.
