User / DarwinRobot / The Gods do not Subtract

Although a little altered and missing a rather important apostrophe, this sign nevertheless does manage to put across the heart of a quote attributed to Herbert Hoover, 31st President of the United States of America.

Apparently, Mr Hoover actually said "The gods do not deduct from man’s allotted span the hours spent in fishing." which is a little less tortuous and a tad more compact.

However, bar the omitted apostrophe, I do quite enjoy this Lyme Regis Harbour version, especially the alternative font used for the first word and the added ellipsis at the end. If I was at all interested in fishing then it would indeed induce me to take a trip aboard 'Pegasus'.

Reading the timetable more closely, I notice that 'Pegasus' also offers photography charters. Now that could be good...
