Throughout his literary career, John Robert Colombo has observed human nature and written aphorisms. These have appeared in The Globe and Mail and in a series of limited editions published in the 1980s and 1990s. Now, for the first time, they have been collected and are presented here in an alphabetical arrangement that goes from “Abatement” to “Zero.”
An aphorism is a stylish expression of a paradoxical truth, a wry observation, a sudden insight, an odd wordplay, a curious fact, or an idea given provocative expression. “A word may be a world.” “The remark outlasts the man.” “Sleep is a way of courting ‘recurrent oblivion.’” These are three instances of the more than 3,000 observations included.
