Ruth Rudner

  • Adventure is our birthright.

  • The joy in catching butterflies is the joy of capturing — for an instant — utter beauty. The satisfaction of being able to let it go is immense.

  • Fishing can come as close to doing nothing as anything I can think of.

  • It's nice, when fishing, to catch a fish. But it doesn't really matter if you don't. What you always catch is a quiet time sitting at the water's edge, or in a gently rocking boat, a silent time of water and sky and the movement of natural things.

Ruth Rudner, U.S. writer

(1938)
