Americans are benevolently ignorant about Canada, while Canadians are malevolently well informed about the United States.
John Bartlett Brebner (1895-1957)
I'm Jay. Australian, gay, writer. Beauty's to be found, in places, people, ideas.
I don’t like the sound of all those lists he’s making - it’s like taking too many notes at school; you feel you’ve achieved something when you haven’t.
Dodie Smith (1896-1990)
If all the good people were clever,
And all clever people were good,
The world would be nicer than ever
We thought that it possibly could.
But somehow ‘tis seldom or never
The two hit it off as they should,
The good are so harsh to the clever,
The clever, so rude to the good.
Elizabeth Wordsworth (1840-1932)
