Famous quotes containing the word davies:

    A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.
    —Robertson Davies (b. 1913)

    And as the sun above the light doth bring,
    Though we behold it in the air below,
    So from th’ eternal Light the soul doth spring,
    Though in the body she her powers do show.
    —Sir John Davies (1569–1626)

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