Famous quotes containing the words partners and/or harvest:
“It is ultimately in employers best interests to have their employees families functioning smoothly. In the long run, children who misbehave because they are inadequately supervised or marital partners who disapprove of their spouses work situation are productivity problems. Just as work affects parents and children, parents and children affect the workplace by influencing the employed parents morale, absenteeism, and productivity.”
—Ann C. Crouter (20th century)
“The prairies were dust. Day after day, summer after summer, the scorching winds blew the dust and the sun was brassy in a yellow sky. Crop after crop failed. Again and again the barren land must be mortgaged for taxes and food and next years seed. The agony of hope ended when there was not harvest and no more credit, no money to pay interest and taxes; the banker took the land. Then the bank failed.”
—Rose Wilder Lane (18861968)
