Better to hunt in fields, for health unbought, Than fee the doctor for a nauseous draught. The wise, for cure, on exercise depend; God never made his work for man to mend.
A work of art must narrate something that does not appear within its outline. The objects and figures represented in it must likewise poetically tell you of something that is far away from them and also of what their shapes materially hide from us. A certain dog painted by Courbet (French 19th century painter, ed.) is like the story of a poetic and romantic Hunt. (1919)giorgio de chirico
"The rules!" shouted Ralph, "you're breaking the rules!" "Who cares?" Ralph summoned his wits. "Because the rules are the only thing we've got!" But Jack was shouting against him.

To Hunt an'assault'on the mountain merely meant a concerted, military-style operation; whereas to Shipton 'assault'sounded more like a criminal offence.
The Wild Hunt is known in all Celtic countries; it is a huntsman with a pack of hounds who is seen or heard to rush through the country. Those who see him are doomed to die. The writer heard the Wild Hunt quite distinctly one night in Wales several years ago, but has not suffered any ill effects from it as yet.Robertson Davies
Better to Hunt in fields, for health unbought, Than fee the doctor for a nauseous draught. The wise, for cure, on exercise depend; God never made his work, for man to mend.john dryden
An old-fashioned Virginia fox Hunt, gentlemen.
I will remain what I am until I die, a hunter, and when there are no buffalo or other game I will send my children to Hunt and live on prairie mice, for where an Indian is shut up in one place his body becomes weak.sitting bull
There are sadistic scientists who hurry to Hunt down errors instead of establishing the truth.marie curie
...MacDonald, in a veritable furor of intellectual integrity and moral honesty sets out to Hunt down his "mistakes" without ever changing the record in the slightest, his technique being to annotate his earlier articles with refutations of himself.dwight macdonald
Merely reading the Bible is no use at all without we study it thoroughly, and Hunt it through, as it were, for some great truth.dwight l. moody
The woods were made for the hunter of dreams,The brooks for the fishers of song;To the hunters who Hunt for the gunless gameThe streams and the woods belong.There are thoughts that moan from the soul of pineAnd thoughts in a flower bell curled;And the thoughts that are blown with scent of the fernAre as new and as old as the world.sam walter foss
Let fame, that all Hunt after in their lives, Live register'd upon our brazen tombs.william shakespeare

"You could get someone to dress up as a pig and then he could act you know, pretend to knock me over and all that " "You want a real pig," said Robert, still caressing his rump, "because you've got to kill him." "Use a littlun," said Jack, and everybody laughed.william golding

I've had enough of this place where they stuff you full of bull and then Hunt you down and kill you every day.r. a. lafferty
Where storm-born shadows hide and Hunt I knew thee, in thy glorious youth, And loved thy vast face, white as truth; I stood where thunderbolts were wont To smite thy Titan-fashioned front, And heard dark mountains rock and roll; I saw the lightning's gleaming rod Reach forth and write on heaven's scroll The awful autograph of God!joaquin miller
Your sport, my Lord, I cannot take, For I must go and Hunt a lake; And while you chase the flying deer, I must fly off to Windermere. Instead of hallooing to a fox, I must catch echoes from the rocks; With curious eye and active scent, I on the Picturesque am bent.
The babbling echo mocks the hounds, Replying shrilly to the well-tun'd horns, As if a double Hunt were heard at once.william shakespeare
You may seek it with thimbles and seek it with care; You may Hunt it with forks and hope; You may threaten its life with a railway-share; You may charm it with smiles and soap.
From Hallaj, I learned to Hunt lions , but I became something hungrier than a lion.
Nobody uses something like this to Hunt. Nobody uses something like this for self defense. There's no reason it should be on our streets.
You may seek it with thimbles and seek it with care; You may Hunt it with forks and hope; You may threaten its life with a railway-share; You may charm it with smiles and soap ("That's exactly the method," the Bellman bold In a hasty parenthesis cried, "That's exactly the way I have always been told That the capture of Snarks should be tried!") "'But oh, beamish nephew, beware of the day, If your Snark be a Boojum! For then You will softly and suddenly vanish away, And never be met with again!'
