Henry Channon (1897-1958), quoted in Ted Morgan, Maugham (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1980), pp. 386-387:
I have put my whole life's work into my anglicization. The more I know of American civilization, the more I despise it. It is a menace to the peace and future of the world. If it triumphs, the old civilizations, which love beauty and peace and the arts and rank and privilege will pass from the picture. And all we will have left will be Fords and cinemas. Ugh!
