„When I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split.“

—  Raymond Chandler Novelist, screenwriter 1888 - 1959
Context: By the way, would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write in a sort of broken-down patois which is something like the way a Swiss-waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will remain split, and when I interrupt the velvety smoothness of my more or less literate syntax with a few sudden words of barroom vernacular, this is done with the eyes wide open and the mind relaxed and attentive. The method may not be perfect, but it is all I have. In a letter to the editor of the Atlantic Monthly.

—  Harry Belafonte American singer 1927
