Famous quotes containing the words canada and/or pratt:

    I see Canada as a country torn between a very northern, rather extraordinary, mystical spirit which it fears and its desire to present itself to the world as a Scotch banker.
    Robertson Davies (b. 1913)

    So motionless, she seemed stone dead—just seemed:
    She was too old for death, too old for life,
    For as if jealous of all living forms
    She had lain there before bivalves began
    To catacomb their shells on western mountains.
    —Edwin John Pratt (1882–1964)
