“The word ‘Ottoman’ would fall into disuse and disrepute until such time as the inevitable revisions of later days, when the world would realise that the Ottoman Empire had been cosmopolitan and tolerant.”
“Give me nice polite hypocrisy any time, which is something all of us could profitably learn from the English.” No offence to the English - after all, the author is British.
