As in French, so does Spanish: the familiar "you" is "tu" and the formal is
"usted". In English likewise it used to be informally "thou" and formally
"you". Quakers made it a point to address everyone equally as "thou" until
it became archaic by the modern use of "you".--Diane

Methinks that everyone is daft except me and thee; and sometimes I wonder
about thee.--Quaker humor
