The people of Yorkshire are immensely proud of both their county and their identity, embracing the popular nickname of God's Own County given to Yorkshire.
The most common stereotype of a Yorkshire person is being tight with money: there is a British saying that "a Yorkshireman is a Scotsman with all the generosity squeezed out of him", which references how Scots are also stereotyped as being tight but not as tight as Yorkshire folk. This stereotype can also be seen in the Yorkshireman's Motto:
'Ear all, see all, say nowt;
Eyt all, sup all, pay nowt;
And if ivver tha does owt fer nowt -
Do it fer thissen.Arnold Kellett, Yorkshire Dialect Classics, page......
