Famous quotes containing the word davies:

    And I could see that child’s one eye
    Which seemed to laugh, and say with glee:
    ‘What caused my death you’ll never know—
    Perhaps my mother murdered me.’

    —William Henry Davies (1871–1940)

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

    He types his laboured column—weary drudge!
    Senile fudge and solemn:
    Spare, editor, to condemn
    These dry leaves of his autumn.
    —Robertson Davies (b. 1913)
