"Some cook, some do not cook,/some things cannot be altered"
Dorothy [Pound] made no attempt to learn to cook -- 'Remember, I can't do a thing myself,' she warned him soon before the marriage -- and Ezra accepted this philosophically. 'Some cook, some do not cook,/some things can not be changed,' he writes in Canto 54. Wyndham Lewis has recorded that Ezra was 'an excellent cook.'
