Description
One of Canada's most distinguished men of letters (a term he at times detested) and the recipient of the Governor General's Literary Award, Robertson Davies (191395) is remembered for the superb aphorisms in his plays, novels, criticism, and satire. "Some quotation-worthy phrases are mere descriptions beautifully composed, or opinions about Canadian life, or a humorously irreverent insult," notes James Channing Shaw in his preface. Among 880 such lines collected here are gems like these: "Biography at its best is a form of fiction." "Nothing grows old-fashioned so fast as modernity." "There is more to marriage than four bare legs in a blanket." "Never harbor grudges; they sour your stomach and do no harm to anyone else."
