Famous quotes containing the words hunting and/or human:

    As I drew a still fresher soil about the rows with my hoe, I disturbed the ashes of unchronicled nations who in primeval years lived under these heavens, and their small implements of war and hunting were brought to the light of this modern day.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
