Famous quotes containing the word farmers:

    Our farmers round, well pleased with constant gain,
    Like other farmers, flourish and complain.
    George Crabbe (1754–1832)

    This fair homestead has fallen to us, and how little have we done to improve it, how little have we cleared and hedged and ditched! We are too inclined to go hence to a “better land,” without lifting a finger, as our farmers are moving to the Ohio soil; but would it not be more heroic and faithful to till and redeem this New England soil of the world?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I find ... virtue to be found amongst the farmers of the country alone, not about courts, where courtiers dwell.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
