Farms

Famous quotes containing the word farms:

    Look. And the dancers move
    On the departed, snow bushed green, wanton in moon light
    As a dust of pigeons. Exulting, the grave hooved
    Horses, centaur dead, turn and tread the drenched white
    Paddocks in the farms of birds. The dead oak walks for love.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Lead bullets flattened by human teeth have been found on the camp site. Soldiers who had been caught stealing food from nearby farms customarily chewed on a bullet as the lash was laid on their bare backs.
    —For the State of New Jersey, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    A feeble man can see the farms that are fenced and tilled, the houses that are built. The strong man sees the possible houses and farms. His eye makes estates, as fast as the sun breeds clouds.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
