Great Quotes From Famous Sportsmen

As the title says, these are notable quotes made by famous sportsmen and women. The list includes very well known people as well as lesser known people.  But they all were hunters, shooters, and outdoor enthusiasts.  They spent a significant portion of their lives doing what you and I can only do when we have time to spare.  Often they had little contact with civilization in the modern sense and some even had little contact with their fellow man.  Nevertheless, they showed keen insight and a wisdom that can only be cultivated by tempering city life experiences with a good dose of wilderness experiences.
