Famous quotes containing the word cook:

    A monarchy is like a man-of-war—bad shots between wind and water hurt it exceedingly; there is a danger of capsizing. But democracy is a raft. You cannot easily overturn it. It is a wet place, but it is a pretty safe one.
    —Flavius Josephus Cook (1838–1901)

    James, Captain Cook (1728–1779)

    ... cooking is just like religion. Rules don’t no more make a cook than sermons make a saint.
