Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
Henry David Thoreau
The opposite for courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.
Even in the developing parts of the world, kids take to computers like fish to water.
You can be vegetarian and eat fish. It's your choice, just say: 'I am what I am.' There are no hardcore divisions anymore.
If I were not African, I wonder whether it would be clear to me that Africa is a place where the people do not need limp gifts of fish but sturdy fishing rods and fair access to the pond. I wonder whether I would realize that while African nations have a failure of leadership, they also have dynamic people with agency and voices.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I like to fish. Fishing is always a way of relaxing.
What is a fish without a river? What is a bird without a tree to nest in? What is an Endangered Species Act without any enforcement mechanism to ensure their habitat is protected? It is nothing.
My mother early on taught us to respect all animals, and I mean all animals - not just cats and dogs but rats and snakes and spiders and fish and wildlife, so I really grew up believing they are just like us and just as deserving of consideration.
I do hunt, and I do fish, and I don't apologize to anybody for hunting and fishing.
Light doesn't penetrate beneath the surface of the water, so ocean creatures like whales and dolphins and even 800 species of fish communicate by sound. And a North Atlantic right whale can transmit across hundreds of miles.
When you fish for love, bait with your heart, not your brain.
It's okay to eat fish because they don't have any feelings.
You know when they have a fishing show on TV? They catch the fish and then let it go. They don't want to eat the fish, they just want to make it late for something.

Governing a great nation is like cooking a small fish - too much handling will spoil it.
Telling a teenager the facts of life is like giving a fish a bath.
Arnold H. Glasow
Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says 'Chicken of the Sea.'
The ocean is the lifeblood of our world. If we were to lose our fish that we appreciate so much by overfishing; or if we were to lose some of our favorite beaches to overbuilding and pollution, then how would we feel? It's become a case of not knowing what you've got until it's gone.
Don't be a fish; be a frog. Swim in the water and jump when you hit ground.
I love the water. Everything about it. Smelling the humidity in the air, seeing the mist rise in the morning, feeling the dew-wet grass on my bare feet. I love watching the fish jump and the geese land. We even have an eagle here that circles every so often.
There's a great metaphor that one of my doctors uses: If a fish is swimming in a dirty tank and it gets sick, do you take it to the vet and amputate the fin? No, you clean the water. So, I cleaned up my system. By eating organic raw greens, nuts and healthy fats, I am flooding my body with enzymes, vitamins and oxygen.

Man can now fly in the air like a bird, swim under the ocean like a fish, he can burrow into the ground like a mole. Now if only he could walk the earth like a man, this would be paradise.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
