A Quote by Sir William Davenant

For angling-rod he took a sturdy oake; For line, a cable that in storm ne'er broke; His hooke was such as heads the end of pole To pluck down house ere fire consumes it whole; The hook was baited with a dragon's tale,- And then on rock he stood to bob for whale.

Sir William Davenant (1606 - 1668)
