Izaak Walton Quotes

Angling may be said to be so like the mathematics that it can never be fully learned.

As no man is born an artist, so no man is born an angler.

God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.

God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling.

Good company and good discourse are the very sinews of virtue.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.

I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing.

I love such mirth as does not make friends ashamed to look upon one another next morning.

In so doing, use him as though you loved him.

No man can lose what he never had.

That which is everybody's business is nobody's business.

The person that loses their conscience has nothing left worth keeping.

Those little nimble musicians of the air, that warble forth their curious ditties, with which nature hath furnished them to the shame of art.

Words are men's daughters, but God's sons are things.
