Famous quotes containing the word davies:

    Nothing is so easy to fake as the inner vision.
    —Robertson Davies (b. 1913)

    What we call luck is the inner man externalized. We make things happen to us.
    —Robertson Davies (b. 1913)

    Too much traffic with a quotation book begets a conviction of ignorance in a sensitive reader. Not only is there a mass of quotable stuff he never quotes, but an even vaster realm of which he has never heard.
    —Robertson Davies (b. 1913)
