Generally attributed to Henry David Thoreau.
The student of development finds, not only that the chick commences its existence as an egg, primarily identical, in all essential respects, with that of the Dog, but that the yelk of this egg undergoes division that the primitive groove arises, and that the contiguous parts of the germ are fashioned, by precisely similar methods into a young chick, which, at one stage of its existence, is so like the nascent Dog, that ordinary inspection would hardly distinguish the two. The history of the development of any other vertebrate animal, Lizard, Snake, Frog, or Fish, tells the same story.thomas henry huxley

Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a Fish, will he give him a serpent?

Who, of men, can tell That flowers would bloom, or that green fruit would swell To melting pulp, that Fish would have bright mail, The earth its dower of river, wood, and vale, The meadows runnels, runnels pebble-stones, The seed its harvest, or the lute its tones, Tones ravishment, or ravishment its sweet, If human souls did never kiss and greet?john keats

Anglers have a way of romanticizing their battles with Fish and of forgetting that the Fish has a hook in his mouth, his gullet, or his belly and that his gameness is really an extreme of panic in which he runs, leaps, and pulls to get away until he dies. It would seem to be enough advantage to the angler that the Fish has the hook in his mouth rather than the angler.
