"At least in your world, your mages wouldn't try to be respectable to begin with. If they were in my place and me in theirs, perhaps they would view less knowledge as a blessing," said as if that's explanation enough. Because at least in Strange's mind, it is. Lambert's world is entirely different from his, of course the mages would act differently than magicians of Strange's world would. Maybe if their worlds were swapped, some of Lambert's mages would act closer to how Norrell behaved and the English magicians would act closer to how Lambert's mages behaved.
Of course, the idea of Gilbert Norrell in freaky grimdark fantasy world is enough to make Strange wince slightly. The poor man would be dead within a week.
"He certainly hates the Raven King...though terrified might be a bit too much." Fun fact: Strange remembers the bare minimum of that prophecy Vinculus told him and has straight up forgotten the part where surprise, turns out that Norrell
kind of terrified of the Raven King.
