Famous quotes containing the word hooks:

    Farewell, Love, and all thy laws for ever:
    Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more;
    Senec and Plato call me from thy lore,
    To perfect wealth my wit for to endeavour.
    Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?–1542)

    —bell hooks (b. c. 1955)

    ... the function of art is to do more than tell it like it is—it’s to imagine what is possible.
