Famous quotes containing the word davies:

    The world is burdened with young fogies. Old men with ossified minds are easily dealt with. But men who look young, act young and everlastingly harp on the fact that they are young, but who nevertheless think and act with a degree of caution that would be excessive in their grandfathers, are the curse of the world. Their very conservatism is secondhand, and they don’t know what they are conserving.
    —Robertson Davies (b. 1913)

    What is this life if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare?
    —William Henry Davies (1871–1940)

    Few people can see genius in someone who has offended them.
    —Robertson Davies (b. 1913)
