Professor Persoff in 1843 calculated details of the number of walking sticks crossing London Bridge during the previous six months: 1.490.720; more than a third he concluded were oak saplings, over a fifth were veritable bambo.

The best, the most exquisite automobile is a walking stick, and one of the finest things in life is going on a journey with it

…striding up and down the fashionable promenade from 10 in the morning till six at night with his coat hanging on a stick over his shoulder making the Emperor and Empress and the Court stand aside for him.

I’ve sticks and canes for old and young
To either they are handy
In driving off a barking cur,
Or chastising a dandy

Consolation from the worlds’ deceit is very common. Some men find consolation even from their walking stick
