Страница 255 - And here it is to be noted, that such Ornaments of the Church and of the Ministers thereof, at all Times of their Ministration, shall be retained, and be in use, as were in this Church of England, by the Authority of Parliament, in the Second Year of the Reign of King Edward the Sixth.
Страница 340 - Indeed, my good scholar, we may say of angling, as Dr. Boteler said of strawberries, " Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did :" and so, if I might be judge, " God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation, than angling.
Страница 337 - The Compleat Angler or the Contemplative Man's Recreation. Being a Discourse of Fish and Fishing, Not unworthy the perusal of most Anglers.
Страница 244 - Proud Prelate, — You know what you were before I made you what you are now. If you do not immediately comply with my request. I will unfrock you, by God.
Страница 339 - But the Nightingale, another of my airy creatures, breathes such sweet loud music out of her little instrumental throat, that it might make mankind to think miracles are not ceased.
Страница 339 - No life, my honest scholar, no life so happy and so pleasant as the life of a well-governed Angler ; for when the Lawyer is swallowed up with business, and the Statesman is preventing or contriving plots, then we sit on cowslip-banks, hear the birds sing, and possess ourselves in as much quietness as these silent silver streams, which we now see glide so quietly by us.
Страница 359 - But crystal currents glide within their bounds ; The finny brood their wonted haunts forsake, Float in the sun, and skim along the lake; With frequent leap they range the shallow streams. Their silver coats reflect the dazzling beams. Now let the fisherman his toil s prepare, And arm himself with ev'ry watery snare ; His hooks, his lines, peruse with careful eye. Increase his tackle, and his rod re-tie.
Страница 346 - Of recreation there is none So free as Fishing is alone; All other pastimes do no less Than mind and body both possess : My hand alone my work can do, So I can fish and study too.
Страница 434 - The Story of Burnt Njal ; Or, Life in Iceland at the end of the Tenth Century.
Страница 360 - Nor trowl for pikes, dispeoplers of the lake. Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line : Let me, less cruel, cast the feather'd hook With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook, Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with the fur-wrought fly delude the prey.
