'Tis the white stag, Fame, we're a-hunting, bid the world's hounds come to horn!
— Ezra Pound

Though I am an old horse, and have seen and heard a great deal, I never yet could make out why men are so fond of this sport; they often hurt themselves, often spoil good horses, and tear up the fields, and all for a hare, or a fox, or a stag, that they could get more easily some other way; but we are only horses, and don't know.
— stags quotation by Anna Sewell
