Famous quotes containing the word field:

    Mine was, as it were, the connecting link between wild and cultivated fields; as some states are civilized, and others half-civilized, and others savage or barbarous, so my field was, though not in a bad sense, a half-cultivated field. They were beans cheerfully returning to their wild and primitive state that I cultivated, and my hoe played the Ranz des Vaches for them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Beat! beat! drums!—blow! bugles! blow!
    Through the windows—through doors—burst like a ruthless force,
    Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation;
    Into the school where the scholar is studying;
    Leave not the bridegroom quiet—no happiness must he have now with his bride;
    Nor the peaceful farmer any peace, plough his field or gathering his
    grain;
    So fierce you whirr and pound, you drums—so shrill you bugles blow.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    The poet will write for his peers alone. He will remember only that he saw truth and beauty from his position, and expect the time when a vision as broad shall overlook the same field as freely.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
