Alastair Cook quotes by Debra Holland

Alastair Cook quotes by Jill A. Davis
#6. I daydream - and get paid for it. I recall a scene from An Officer and a Gentleman. At the end of the movie Richard Gere, dressed in his naval whites, goes into a factory, picks up Debra Winger, and carries her out of that depressing place with all of those dirty machines.
I wish that would happen to me. Of course the whole time I'd be worried that the guy was trying to guess my weight or something. I realize how truly pathetic I am. Some guy in a uniform drags his woman out of the workplace to stick her in a house to cook and possibly even clip coupons, and I am staring to buy into it, into the anti-female propaganda disguised as romance. As soon as he picks her up, things have to head south from there, because at some point, he has to put her down. #Quote by Jill A. Davis
Alastair Cook quotes by Tracy Rees

Alastair Cook quotes by Dane Cook
#10. Here's how you know that you're really drunk: when you get into a taxi cab and you think the fare is the time. #Quote by Dane Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Jerry Seinfeld
#11. I will never understand why they cook on TV. I can't smell it. Can't eat it. Can't taste it. The end of the show they hold it up to the camera, 'Well, here it is. You can't have any. Thanks for watching. Goodbye.' #Quote by Jerry Seinfeld
Alastair Cook quotes by Kristie Cook
#12. She became uncharacteristically silent, and I suppressed a chuckle. I knew exactly what Jax's body looked like. All of it. It didn't compare to Tristan's, but I could understand why Blossom would be impressed. The man-croc lacked nothing excpect hair #Quote by Kristie Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Vera Jane Cook
#13. Clarissa noticed his eyes, they were like indifferent tides, shielding knowledge of an impending storm #Quote by Vera Jane Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Richard Simmons
#14. I began reading cook books when I was six, cause my father had hundreds of cook books in the kitchen. I was obsessed with cooking and tasting different recipes. I got lost in being a compulsive eater. It brought me much happiness. Sadness too, sure. But I have to say, and compulsive eaters will agree with me, for that few seconds that you're eating, food tastes just great. #Quote by Richard Simmons
Alastair Cook quotes by Kristi Cook
#15. We can't walk through the house like this--we'll make a mess." Ryder's jeans are soaked through and caked with mud. I'm wearing shorts, but my bare legs are spattered all over. "We're going to have to strip here," I say, shaking my head. "Just leave it all in a pile. I'll toss it in the wash after lunch."
He just stares at me, wide-eyed. "What? Now?"
"Yeah, you go first," I say, amused by the blush that's creeping up his neck. "Geez, Ryder. It's not like I haven't seen you in your underpants before."
I have vague memories of Ryder running around Magnolia Landing's lawn wearing nothing but superhero undies. And after all the years of shared beach houses and hotel suites, well…like I said, we were more like siblings when we were little.
"If it'll make you more comfortable, I'll turn around," I offer.
"Nah, it's fine." He reaches for the hem of his T-shirt and pulls it over his head in one fluid motion.
And then I remember why this was a bad idea. My mouth goes dry at the sight of his tanned, sculpted chest, his narrow waist, and jutting hip bones. Oh, man. What was I thinking?
I swallow hard as he unbuttons his jeans and slides down the zipper. Boxers or briefs? That's all I'm thinking as he peels down the wet denim--slowly, as if he's enjoying this little striptease. He steps out of them gracefully and tosses them into a heap beside his shirt before straightening to his full height, facing me.
Oh. My. God.
I exhale sharply. The ans #Quote by Kristi Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Charles Dickens
#16. In came the cook, with her brother's particular friend, the milkman. #Quote by Charles Dickens

Alastair Cook quotes by Kristi Cook
#18. After a moment or two, a strange awareness shot through me, and I looked up to see Aidan Gray slip into the seat directly across the room, facing me. Great. There went my concentration, especially since he sat there watching me, studying me like some interesting bug under a microscope. #Quote by Kristi Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Amy Weber
#19. I love to cook and really enjoy cleaning my house. People always tease me about getting a maid. My girlfriend tells me that they are only $40 and will do everything. But that is my time to unwind, put my hair in a ponytail, throw on sweats, and be myself. #Quote by Amy Weber
Alastair Cook quotes by Feist
#20. I was a bar-back, which is the person who cleans the bathrooms at the end of the night in the bar, and a cook. I had kind of given up. I was into backing other people up. Music was something I just did on the side and I don't think I had the energy to pimp myself out, like call people up and ask them to book me to play. #Quote by Feist
Alastair Cook quotes by K.S. Augustin
#21. [In answer to Glenn Cook] My favourite sport is men, and my favourite food is whisky. #Quote by K.S. Augustin
Alastair Cook quotes by Glen Cook

Alastair Cook quotes by Tim Cook
#23. The iPad remains Apple's second bestselling product - all the more reason why the iPad Pro needs to be "big" in every sense of the word. #Quote by Tim Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Alastair Reynolds
#24. Elephants have a theory of mind - they can think into the head of another elephant and infer their knowledge of the world, including errors and omissions of knowledge. That puts them above all but a handful of species - a few primates, some very smart birds and cetaceans. #Quote by Alastair Reynolds
Alastair Cook quotes by Scott Cook
#25. Subsequent to the original Quicken, the whole idea that we, as a consumer products company, could actually make business products, that was a whole revolution in our thinking. #Quote by Scott Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Wendell Berry
#26. The food industrialists have by now persuaded millions of consumers to prefer food that is already prepared. They will grow, deliver, and cook your food for you and (just like your mother) beg you to eat it. That they do not yet offer to insert it, prechewed, into your mouth is only because they have found no profitable way to do so. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Alastair Cook quotes by Kristi Cook
#27. Ryder! What's taking you so long?"
"I'm on my way!" he yells back.
It feels like forever before he pushes open the door and ducks inside. Then I see why it took him so long. He's somehow got the three cats tucked under one arm and the cake plate clutched in the other hand. No spare for a flashlight or lantern--so he accomplished this all in the dark.
"Here," he says, handing off the cake to me before releasing Kirk, Spock, and Sulu into the crate and latching the door.
"Seriously, Ryder? You brought the cake?"
He shrugs. "I was hungry."
Hmm, I guess all that kissing worked up his appetite. For cake. I'm not sure if I should be offended or not. On the plus side, he doesn't look like he's about to puke. So we're making progress as far as his fear of storms goes. I guess that's something.
"Did you happen to bring a fork?" I ask, setting the plate on the makeshift tabletop.
He produces two from his pocket, holding them up triumphantly. So we eat cake while the sirens blare. Actually, it doesn't sound that bad out there. Still, the fact that we're so calm--that Ryder's so calm--should tell you how routine this is getting. As long as we don't hear that awful freight-train sound, we're good.
"What happened to the cake?" he asks between bites. "It looks like someone mutilated it while I was gone."
"Sorry," I mutter. "Guess I did some stress bingeing. You realize you're not wearing a shirt, right?"
He glances down and shrugs, his #Quote by Kristi Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by James Cook
#28. Allowing liberals to manage economic policy is like hiring monkeys to be aircraft mechanics. #Quote by James Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Dane Cook
#29. My mom and dad passed away from cancer. Within nine months, I lost both of my folks. Immediately after that, I had a horrible betrayal where my brother, who worked for me, stole a lot of my money. He's in jail now. #Quote by Dane Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Ina Garten
#30. My mother would never let me in the kitchen. I always wanted to cook, but I was never allowed to. Her view of the world was, 'Cooking is my job, and studying is your job.' I think, in retrospect, she didn't like the chaos. She was very orderly. It had to be her way. #Quote by Ina Garten
Alastair Cook quotes by John Cheever
#31. Nils's gardens no longer bore any relationship to the needs of the house. Each spring he plowed and planted acres of vegetables and flowers. The coming up of the asparagus shoots was the signal for a hopeless race between the vegetables and Mrs. Garrison's table. Nils, embittered by the waste that he himself was the author of, came each evening to the kitchen door to tell the cook that unless they are more peas, more strawberries, more beans, more lettuce, more cabbages, the magnificent vegetables that he had watered with his sweat would rot.
- The Common Day #Quote by John Cheever
Alastair Cook quotes by Blanche Wiesen Cook
#32. I mean, if you pause over what it means at the age of 76 that Eleanor Roosevelt wrote, the happiest single day of her life was the day she made the first team at field hockey. Field hockey is a team sport. Field hockey is a knockabout - I mean, picture Allenswood, the swamps of north London. It's a messy sport. So she really enjoyed playing this rough-and-tumble sport in the mud of Allenswood, a team sport. And she was very competitive. And she loved being competitive, and she loved to win. And that, I think, was all of the things that Allenswood enabled. #Quote by Blanche Wiesen Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Coolio
#33. Everything I cook tastes better than yo' momma's nipples. #Quote by Coolio
Alastair Cook quotes by Robert Farrar Capon
#34. All salt and no finesse makes Jack a dull cook. #Quote by Robert Farrar Capon
Alastair Cook quotes by Nora Roberts
#35. Matt's brother and the blond cook spent a good portion of last season tangling the sheets. Historically, said cook tangled many other sheets with dexterity and aplomb."
"It's a polite way to say she banged often, well and without too much discrimination."
"That also sounded polite."
"I was raised well. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Alastair Cook quotes by Vera Jane Cook
#36. The passing years often rob people of the truth. But then again, those passing years also allow people to recreate the truth. #Quote by Vera Jane Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Blanche Wiesen Cook
#37. And her [Eleanor Roosevelt] Grandmother Hall provided her really with a quite wonderful education, and a freedom that, within the framework of Tivoli (which is a framework of discipline and order) is also a very encouraging and loving one. #Quote by Blanche Wiesen Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Ashton Kutcher
#38. I think that romance sort of coincides with effort, so you can fall flat on your face, but as long as you're making a great effort, I think it comes off as romantic. So it can be something as simple as, like, if you're someone who doesn't cook, you can make a meal. #Quote by Ashton Kutcher
Alastair Cook quotes by Dane Cook
#39. I think that people who do enjoy my stand-up comedy and the people who get it and the people who are taken in by it, they see that I'm a guy that has love of the game. #Quote by Dane Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Jo Coudert
#40. Cookbooks, I found, are intended for people with time to cook - and, surprisingly often, for people who already know how to cook. #Quote by Jo Coudert
Alastair Cook quotes by Carrie Ann Inaba
#41. My grandmother used to cook for eight every day - sitting down lunches and dinner, the way you do it in Italy, you sit down. And when my parents could afford their own place, I went with them but still my mother used to work but used to come back from work to cook lunch for my father, come back from work, cook dinner for my father and me. #Quote by Carrie Ann Inaba
Alastair Cook quotes by Peter Cook
#42. Playing rugby at school I once fell on a loose ball and, through ignorance and fear, held on despite a fierce pummelling. After that it took me months to convince my team-mates I was a coward. #Quote by Peter Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Freddie Highmore
#43. I've never been a great cook. #Quote by Freddie Highmore
Alastair Cook quotes by Ilona Andrews
#44. I ordered four eggs and my new friend ordered some doughnuts. We both stayed away from sausage. Unless you knew the restaurant well and trusted the cook, ordering ground meat was a bad idea, because for some places "beef" was a code for rat meat. The #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Alastair Cook quotes by Jarod Kintz
#45. I hate the phrase "Shit or get off the pot," because I rarely cook with feces. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Alastair Cook quotes by Glen Cook
#46. Write. Don't talk about writing. Don't tell me about your wonderful story ideas. Don't give me a bunch of 'somedays'. Plant your ass and scribble, type, keyboard. If you have any talent at all it will leak out despite your failure to pay attention in English.

Alastair Cook quotes by Dane Cook
#47. True love is when you're cheating on a person but the thought of them still makes your eyes smile! #Quote by Dane Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Eileen Cook
#48. I refused to believe that I'd gone from sane to full-blown delusional in one night. After some consideration, I determined I didn't have any other crazy thoughts. I didn't think I was Napoleon, or that my bagel was an alien, and I didn't have voices in my head warning me about terrorist plots. Near as I could tell, I was still on the right side of sane. #Quote by Eileen Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Scott Cook
#49. So I think instead of focusing on the competition, focus on the customer. #Quote by Scott Cook
Alastair Cook quotes by Alastair Reynolds
#50. At one time, the treatment for a certain kind of psychosis had been to push an ice pick up through the orbit of the eye, into the frontal lobe; the ice pick was then stirred around until it reduced the problematic brain tissue to non-functioning porridge. #Quote by Alastair Reynolds
Alastair Cook quotes by Karen Hawkins
#51. Dougal lifted his spoon and slit it into his mouth. Immediately, a frozen look came over his face.
Sophia tensed.
He removed the spoon from his mouth.
Sophia gripped her own spoon tighter.
A slow red crept up his face, his eyes watering slightly.
Ha! Mary's soup was working its magic. Pleased, Sophia pretended to eat some soup.
Dougal slapped a hand on the table.
The dishes and Sophia jumped. "What's wrong?"
He pointed to his bowl with his spoon. "That."
"The soup? Why, whatever's wrong with it?"
"Nothing.That is the best soup I've ever had."
Sophia blinked. Surely he hadn't just said-
He dipped his spoon back into his bowl and took another large bite. Though his eyes watered and his face turned a deeper red, he continued to eat, murmuring, "Excellent!" every third bite or so.
Sophia looked at her own soup, which reeked of garlic and pepper and onion. Mary had added a large amount of salt, as well. But watching MacLean eat with gusto made her question her perceptions.
What if Mary's natural ability to cook had overcome her attempts to provide an inedible meal?
Sophia dipped her spoon into herbowl and gingerly sniffed the contents, grimacing at the strong odor. Casting a puzzled look at MacLean, who was about finished with his soup, she put the spoon into her mouth.
The burning sensation of pepper mingled with the rancid taste of uncooked garlic and what could only have been salted dishwater. She j #Quote by Karen Hawkins
