Nikesh Shukla
“Integrate well. Move upwards in society. Be praised – until people worry that you’re doing too well, and then they remember that you’re foreign." (from "The Good Immigrant" by Nikesh Shukla)”
Nikesh Shukla, The Good Immigrant

Bill Bryson
“There are loads of people like us. We are all here because we like it here or are married to Britons or both.

If you think the only people you should have in your country are the people you produce yourselves, you are an idiot. And,”
Bill Bryson, The Road to Little Dribbling: Adventures of an American in Britain
