Side 3 - Angling is somewhat like poetry, men are to be born so: I mean, with inclinations to it, though both may be heightened by discourse and practice : but he that hopes to be a good angler, must not only bring an inquiring, searching, observing wit, but he must bring a large measure of hope and patience, and a love and propensity to the art itself; but having once got and practised it, then doubt not but Angling will prove to be so pleasant that it will prove to be, like virtue, a reward to itself.
Side 14 - In the loose rhymes of every poetaster :— Could I be more than any man that lives, Great, fair, rich, wise, all in superlatives : Yet I more freely would these gifts resign, Than ever Fortune would have made them mine; And hold one minute of this holy leisure, Beyond the riches of this empty pleasure.

Side 72 - ... the amount now scheduled to any one of the nations referred to in this particular military assistance program. Mr. MERKOW. I would say, if we do not have the money to spend in Asia, in addition to this program, that as a matter of policy some of the aid ought to be allocated to the Far East, because I do not think there is any place in the world where we can gain so much for a small expenditure as we can in non-Communist China. And since this is a great, perhaps a revolutionary policy that we...
