„I hate bainting, and boetry too! Neither the one nor the other ever did any good.“

—  Jorge II da Grã-Bretanha, John Ireland Hogarth Illustrated (1791); cited from John Ireland and John Nichols Hogarth's Works (1883) p. 122. Later sources usually quote this as "I hate all bainters and boets!", or as "Damn the bainters and the boets too!" The saying is often misattributed to George I.
