Famous quotes containing the word van:

    On the farm I had learned how to meet realities without suffering either mentally or physically. My initiative had never been blunted. I had freedom to succeed—freedom to fail. Life on the farm produces a kind of toughness.
    —Bertha Van Hoosen (1863–1952)
