Bill Hobbs

Famous quotes containing the words hobbs and/or bill:

    The people needed to be rehoused, but I feel disgusted and depressed when I see how they have done it. It did not suit the planners to think how they might deal with the community, or the individuals that made up the community. All they could think was, “Sweep it away!” The bureaucrats put their heads together, and if anyone had told them, “A community is people,” they would not have known what they were on about.
    —May Hobbs (b. 1938)

    It’s true I’ve got no shirts to wear;
    It’s true my butcher’s bill is due;
    It’s true my prospects all look blue—
    But don’t let that unsettle you:
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
