    The French manner of hunting is gentlemanlike; ours is only for bumpkins and bodies. The poor beasts here are pursued and run down by much greater beasts than themselves; and the true British fox-hunter is most undoubtedly a species appropriated and peculiar to this country, which no other part of the globe produces.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Big fish eat small fish, and small fish eat shrimp eggs.
