Hunters

Famous quotes containing the word hunters:

    When shot, the deer seldom drops immediately, but runs sometimes for hours, the hunter in hot pursuit. This phase, known as ‘deer running,’ develops fleet runners, particularly in deer- jacking expeditions when the law is pursuing the hunters as swiftly as the hunters are pursuing the deer.
    —For the State of Maine, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    There is a period in the history of the individual, as of the race, when the hunters are the “best men,” as the Algonquins called them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Back in the days when men were hunters and chestbeaters and women spent their whole lives worrying about pregnancy or dying in childbirth, they often had to be taken against their will. Men complained that women were cold, unresponsive, frigid.... They wanted their women wanton. They wanted their women wild. Now women were finally learning to be wanton and wild—and what happened? The men wilted.
    Erica Jong (b. 1942)
