A Quote by Izaak Walton on authors, church, direction, and lies

He directed that the stone over his grave be inscribed: Hic jacet hujus sententiae primus auctor: DISPUTANDI PRURITUS ECCLESIARUM SCABIES. Nomen alias quaere [Here lies the author of this phrase: "The itch for disputing is the sore of churches." Seek his name elsewhere.]
