Famous quotes containing the word rear:

    It is not easy to free
    myth from reality
    or rear this fellow up
    to lutch, lurch with them
    in the tranced dancing of men.
    Earle Birney (b. 1904)

    In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
