Izaac Walton immortalized in stained glass.  This window can be found in the
Fishermen's Chapel in Winchester Cathedral, Hampshire, England.

It was donated in 1914 by fishermen from England and America.

"And that ye study to be quiet" is from Paul's First Epistle to the Thessalonians,
Chapter 4, Verse 11.

The Compleat Angler, Walton's famous treatise on the joys of fishing was
published in 1653.
