Famous quotes containing the word cook:

    How much more interesting an event is that man’s supper who has just been forth in the snow to hunt, nay, you might say, steal, the fuel to cook it with! His bread and meat are sweet.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Though language forms the preacher,
    ‘Tis “good works” make the man.
    —Eliza Cook (1818–1889)

    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)
