Acres

Famous quotes containing the word acres:

    Those holy fields,
    Over whose acres walked those blessed feet
    Which fourteen hundred years ago were nailed
    For our advantage on the bitter cross.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The same soil is good for men and for trees. A man’s health requires as many acres of meadow to his prospect as his farm does loads of muck.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Happy the man whose wish and care
    A few paternal acres bound,
    Content to breathe his native air
    In his own ground:
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
