Famous quotes containing the word hood:

    Your master Robin Hood lies dead,
    Therefore sigh as you sing.

    Here lie his primer and his beads,
    His bent bow and his arrows keen,
    His good sword and his holy cross:
    Anthony Munday (1553–1633)

    It is not linen you’re wearing out
    But human creatures’ lives!
    Stitch—stitch—stitch,
    In poverty, hunger, and dirt,
    Sewing at once, with a double thread,
    A Shroud as well as a Shirt.
    —Thomas Hood (1799–1845)

    And then in the fulness of joy and hope,
    Seemed washing his hands with invisible soap,
    In imperceptible water.
    —Thomas Hood (1799–1845)
