The actual quote is from Churchill and is: "This is the kind of arrant
pedantry up with which I will not put".
Apparently it was Churchill's response to an editors comment on his History
of the English Speaking Peoples regarding his excessive use of split
infinitives. I can't exactly remember where I got this little Churchillian
jewel, but I'm guessing that it came from his son's biography of him

Paul C.
