Irving Layton
If poetry is like an orgasm, an academic can be likened to someone who studies the passion-stains on the bedsheets.
Layton quotes
When you argue with your inferiors,
you convince them of only one thing:
they are as clever as you.
Canadians look down on the United States and consider it Hell. They are right to do so. Canada is to the United States what, in Dante's scheme, Limbo is to Hell.

Layton Irving quotes
My neighbour
doesn't want to be loved
as much as
he wants to be envied.
Layton Irving
God is indeed dead.
He died of self-horror
when He saw the creature He had made
in His own image.
