Famous quotes containing the word fishes:
“3rd Fisherman. I marvel how the fishes live in the sea.
1st Fisherman. Why, as men do a-land: the great ones eat up the little ones.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“While he hears in every spring
How the birds do chirp and sing:
Or before the hounds in cry
See the hare go stealing by:
Or along the shallow brook,
Angling with a baited hook,
See the fishes leap and play
In a blessed sunny day:”
—Nicholas Breton (15421626)
“If fishes were wishes the ocean would be all of our desire.”
—Gertrude Stein (18741946)
