ALEXANDER WILSON
American (Scottish-born) ornithologist
(1766 - 1813)

Covetous men need money least, yet they most affect it; but prodigals, who need it most have the least regard for it.
      - [Covetousness]

She rears her young on yonder tree;
  She leaves her faithful mate to mind 'em;
    Like us, for fish she sails to sea,
      And, plunging, shows us where to find 'em.
        Yo, ho, my hearts! let's seek the deep,
          Ply every oar, and cheerly with her,
            While slow the bending net we sweep,
              God bless the fish-hawk and the fisher.
      - The Fisherman's Hymn [Hawks]
