HUNTING
[ Also see Sport ]

Hunting is not a proper employment for a thinking man.
      - Joseph Addison

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.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

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.
      - William Cowper

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 (Frederick II)

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.
      - John Gay

Biography, like big game hunting, is one of the recognized forms of sport, and it is [as] unfair as only sport can be.
      - Philip Guedalla

It is very strange and very melancholy that the paucity of human pleasures should persuade us to call hunting one of them.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")
