Famous quotes containing the words journal and/or cooke:

    Unfortunately, many things have been omitted which should have been recorded in our journal; for though we made it a rule to set down all our experiences therein, yet such a resolution is very hard to keep, for the important experience rarely allows us to remember such obligations, and so indifferent things get recorded, while that is frequently neglected. It is not easy to write in a journal what interests us at any time, because to write it is not what interests us.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Man has an incurable habit of not fulfilling the prophecies of his fellow men.
    —Alistair Cooke (b. 1908)
