Famous quotes containing the word cooke:

    It used to be said that you had to know what was happening in America because it gave us a glimpse of our future. Today, the rest of America, and after that Europe, had better heed what happens in California, for it already reveals the type of civilisation that is in store for all of us.
    —Alistair Cooke (b. 1908)

    Man has an incurable habit of not fulfilling the prophecies of his fellow men.
    —Alistair Cooke (b. 1908)

    We have found that morals are not, like bacon, to be cured by hanging; nor, like wine, to be improved by sea voyages; nor, like honey, to be preserved in cells.
    —William Cooke Taylor (1800–1849)
