with the rush of the brook,
or with the shimmer of the sun
on the blue water.
It brings meekness and inspiration
from the decency of nature,
charity toward tackle-makers,
patience toward fish,
a mockery of profits and egos,
a quieting of hate,
and a rejoicing that you do not
have to decide a darned thing
until next week.
And it is a discipline in the equality of men –
For all men are equal before fish.
“Fishing” by President Herbert Hoover.
