Famous quotes containing the word ready:

    The mode of clearing and planting is to fell the trees, and burn once what will burn, then cut them up into suitable lengths, roll into heaps, and burn again; then, with a hoe, plant potatoes where you can come at the ground between the stumps and charred logs; for a first crop the ashes suffice for manure, and no hoeing being necessary the first year. In the fall, cut, roll, and burn again, and so on, till the land is cleared; and soon it is ready for grain, and to be laid down.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Well, something for a snowstorm to have shown
    The country’s singing strength thus brought together,
    That though repressed and moody with the weather
    Was nonetheless there ready to be freed
    And sing the wild flowers up from root and seed.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Breaking free from the delicious security of mother love can be a painful rupture for either mother or son. Some boys can’t do it. Some mothers can’t let it happen because they know the boy is not ready to leave her; others are simply not ready to give up their sons.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)
