Famous quotes containing the words hood and/or tom:

    Work—work—work,
    In the dull December light,
    And work—work—work,
    When the weather is warm and bright—
    While underneath the eaves
    The brooding swallows cling
    As if to show me their sunny backs
    And twit me with the spring.
    —Thomas Hood (1799–1845)

    New York state sentence for a Peeping Tom is six months in the workhouse. And they got no windows in the workhouse. You know, in the old days they used to put your eyes out with a red-hot poker.
    John Michael Hayes (b. 1919)
