Famous quotes containing the word hook:

    A hook shot kisses the rim and
    hangs there, helplessly, but doesn’t drop

    and for once our gangly starting center
    boxes out his man and times his jump

    perfectly, gathering the orange leather
    from the air like a cherished possession
    Edward Hirsch (b. 1950)

    ... with her shoulders as bare as a building,
    with her thin foot and her thin toes,
    with an old red hook in her mouth,
    the mouth that kept bleeding
    into the terrible fields of her soul . . .
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    And yet—it is not beauty that inspires the deepest passion. Beauty without grace is the hook without the bait. Beauty, without expression, tires.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
