Wild goldfish – Literary quote

In my last post about the Cathedral Cave I mentioned a goldfish that lived in the cave. That made me think about goldfish and why people keep them in glass bowls. I suppose a life in an English cave is not any worse than a life in a bowl. The quote is from A.A. Milne’s essay called Goldfish in which he ponders what wild goldfish are like and what they represent. Quoditiana has the full essay if you fancy reading it.
