Famous quotes containing the word field:
“After all the field of battle possesses many advantages over the drawing-room. There at least is no room for pretension or excessive ceremony, no shaking of hands or rubbing of noses, which make one doubt your sincerity, but hearty as well as hard hand-play. It at least exhibits one of the faces of humanity, the former only a mask.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)

—Rebecca Latimer Felton (18351930)

Hate to take the castor-ile they give for belly-ache!

But jest fore Christmas Im as good as I kin be!”
