“So a hare, in making for cover, often escapes a hound by making a number of quick turns. The greater inertia of the hound carries him to far, and thus obliges him to pass over a greater space, as seen [here], in which the continuous line shows the hare’s path and the dotted line the hound’s.” —Quackenbos 1859
