Beans Grant

Famous quotes containing the words beans and/or grant:

    When my hoe tinkled against the stones, that music echoed to the woods and the sky, and was an accompaniment to my labor which yielded an instant and immeasurable crop. It was no longer beans that I hoed, nor I that hoed beans; and I remembered with as much pity as pride, if I remembered at all, my acquaintances who had gone to the city to attend the oratorios.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution.
    —Ulysses S. Grant (1822–1885)
