Descrizione

When the Wise Man laid it down that there were three things which were too wonderful for him - yea, four which he knew not - he came to the climax with "the way of a man with a maid." Some future Solomon will end with a fifth - the way of a trout with a fly - for it combines the poise of the eagle in the air, the swift certainty of a serpent upon a rock, and the mystery of the way of a ship in the midst of the sea, with the incalculableness of the way of a man with a maid. Our aviators seem to be on their way towards a solution of the way of the eagle in the air. The mystery of the way of a ship in the midst of the sea has yielded all its secrets to the persistence of modern man, but the way of a man with a maid and the way of a trout with a fly remain with us to be a delight and a torment to thousands of generations yet unborn.
