“Carp may be said to be water-sheep: herbivorous, gregarious, of a contented mind.”
Frank Buckland (1826-1880)
“Frying gives cooks numerous ways of concealing what appeared the day before and in a pinch facilitates sudden demands, for it takes little more time to fry a four-pound carp than to boil an egg.”
Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
“The carp was dead, killed, assassinated, murdered in the first, second and third degree. Limp, I fell into a chair, with my hands still unwashed reached for a cigarette, lighted it, and waited for the police to come and take me into custody.”
Alice B. Toklas, American writer (1877-1967)
"There was a Young Lady of Welling,
Whose praise all the world was a telling;
She played on the harp,
and caught several carp,
That accomplished Young Lady of Welling."
Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks (1812-1888)
