Chad Love: Great Outdoor Quotes

By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love

I need help from some of the more learned readers of F&S. What I need are great historical hunting and/or fishing quotes or verse. Think Isaac Walton or Peter Beckford type material. You know, the timeless stuff. Quotes from the 'Nuge - while entertaining -  won't cut it.

Why, you ask? Interesting question, that.

I recently came into possession of a number of polished granite headstones. Now before you jump to any grave-robbing conclusions, I picked them up from an old building that used to be a monument company but is very soon going to be a pile of rubble. My plumber bought the property and told me I could scrounge anything I wanted. Imagine my surprise to find all these beautiful slabs of granite just lying around.

So I brought them home, much to my wife's chagrin. She flatly refused to allow me to scatter them through her flowerbeds. I thought it would be quirky and off-beat, but for some reason she considered it morbid and disturbing.

Since my reputation in the neighborhood is already a bit dodgy, I reluctantly agreed, but then hit on a great idea: I would find timeless quotes, inscribe them on the granite and place them strategically around our property! Even my wife agreed it was a pretty cool idea.

For example, this one is, which I found on Steve Bodio's excellent blog is going in front of my dog kennels: "Hee cannot be a gentleman whych loveth not a dogge" which comes from a 1555 book entitled "The Institucion of a Gentleman."

"Litera Scripta Manet" or "the written word endures" will be going on a slab placed outside my office window, while the Ben Johnson quote that hangs above the Shakespeare & Co. book store in Paris  "Thou art alive still while thy book doth live and we have wits to read and praise to give" will be going in my front yard.

So I've got dogs, literature and books covered. Now I need some immortal hunting and/or fishing quotes. The kind of timeless, trenchant wisdom worthy of being etched forever into a block of solid granite and proudly displayed to the whole world, or at least to the mailman, the UPS driver and the guy who jogs by my house every day.

Any ideas?

Thanks for all the great suggestions, guys.They are by turns hilarious, poetic, introspective and flat-out strange, which considering what I want to do with them is fitting...

"Never brag about your dog until AFTER the hunt!" - Gene Hill"Rain 'fore seven(AM), quit 'fore 'leven(AM)." - my Dad. Don't know where he got it, but it works, mostly. Told a school chum once and he laughed. It quit raining about 9:30AM. It started back about 9:45AM, but it did quit for a short while!But, then my Dad had a million of 'em:"Hotter that an $11 cook stove.""Longer than a $3 clothes line.""She's cuter than a speckled pup under a red wagon!""He's about three turns tighter than tree bark!""He'd climb a greased pole backwards to tell a lie rather than stand flat footed on the ground and tell the truth."The one I'll probably always remember was about a cross-eyed fella that ran a business in my home town, "He's so cross-eyed, when he cries, the tears run down the back of his head!"I know, I know, mine are mostly minutia, but they mean something to me!Bubba

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.Don't worry about bitin' off more'n you can chew; your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger'then you think. Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's sure crucial to know what it was.
