    I found this framed, calligraphic artwork many years ago at a local flea market and would date it probably from the early 1980's. I just recently noticed that it is actually signed and the artist's shop is listed on the back. It is by graphic artist Michael Podesta, who unfortunately passed away in June of 2020. The artwork is still available today from his shop in Virginia.
    The quote is also interesting in that it is by John Buchan, 15th Governor General of Canada, who was in power when Canada entered World War 2. An interesting historical figure and also accomplished novelist. His political thriller "The 39 Steps", was later made into a motion picture in 1935, directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
    Go figure, I only bought it because I liked to fish.
