C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Hunting
 
  Hunting is not a proper employment for a thinking man.
Addison.    
  1
        Proud Nimrod first the bloody chase began,
A mighty hunter, and his prey was man.
Pope.    
  2
  It is very strange and very melancholy that the paucity of human pleasures should persuade us to call hunting one of them.
Dr. Johnson.    
  3
  A man who can, in cold blood, hunt and torture a poor, innocent animal, cannot feel much compassion for the distress of his own species.
Frederick the Great.    
  4
  Hunting is a relic of the barbarous spirit that thirsted formerly for human blood, but is now content with the blood of birds and animals.
Bovee.    
  5
        Poor Jack,—no matter who,—for when I blame
I pity, and must therefore sink the name,—
Liv’d in his saddle, lov’d the chase, the course,
And always ere he mounted, kiss’d his horse.
Cowper.    
  6
        The healthy huntsman, with a cheerful horn,
Summons the dogs and greets the dappled Morn.
The jocund thunder wakes the enliven’d hounds,
They rouse from sleep, and answer sounds for sounds.
Gay.    
  7
