What is land?

Famous quotes containing the word land:

    The great fact in life, the always possible escape from dullness, was the lake. The sun rose out of it, the day began there; it was like an open door that nobody could shut. The land and all its dreariness could never close in on you. You had only to look at the lake, and you knew you would soon be free.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    In Europe the object is to make the most of their land, labour being abundant: here it is to make the most of our labour, land being abundant.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with Blood.
    John Brown (1800–1859)
