Zajímavosti

„Sokolnictví by mělo být povýšeno na umění, protože je to jediný oduševnělý způsob lovu, který svou povahou patří ke skutečnému umění. Lidé mohou čtyřnohého tvora ovládat násilím a jinými prostředky, zato ptáka, který krouží vysoko ve vzduchu, může zajmout a vycvičit jen lidský duch. Je to vítězství lidského ducha nad nejsvobodnějším ze zvířat, nad dravcem, který se po vypuštění na pěst vrátí i když to odporuje jeho přirozenosti, ne proto, že by pohrdal svobodou, která mu byla zdánlivě darována, ale proto, že se vrátit musí, přinucen géniem člověka, který ho drží neviditelným poutem“
císař Fridrich II.
