It is thus with farming, if you do one thing late, you will be late in all your work.

Cato The Elder, historian

A good farmer is nothing more nor less than a handy man with a sense of humus.

E.B. (Elwyn Brooks) White,

We must plant the sea and herd its animals using the sea as farmers instead of hunters. That is what civilization is all about - farming replacing hunting.

Jacques Yves Cousteau, explorer

The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways.

John F. Kennedy, president

Henri Alain,

When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.

Daniel Webster, politician

There are only three things that can kill a farmer: lightning, rolling over in a tractor, and old age.

Bill Bryson,

The master's eye is the best fertilizer.

Pliny The Elder, author

Family, work, familiarity. Listen, if I had a magic wand and I could make myself really be happy, I'd zap me onto a farm. And I know nothing about farming.

Scott Baio, actor

One of the happiest days of my life is when I made five or six hundred pesos from a crop of watermelons I raise all on my own.

Lynwood L. Giacomini,

Farming with live animals is a 7 day a week, legal form of slavery.

George Segal, actor

Farm policy, although it's complex, can be explained. What it can't be is believed. No cheating spouse, no teen with a wrecked family car, no mayor of Washington, D.C., videotaped in flagrant has ever come up with anything as farfetched as U.S. farm policy.

P. J. O'Rourke, comedian

With the introduction of agriculture mankind entered upon a long period of meanness, misery, and madness, from which they are only now being freed by the beneficent operation of the machine.

Bertrand Russell, philosopher

I see upon their noble brows the seal of the Lord, for they were born kings of the earth far more truly than those who possess it only from having bought it.

George Sand, novelist

Farmers are respectable and interesting to me in proportion as they are poor.

Henry David Thoreau, author

The farmer works the soil. The agriculturalist works the farmer.

Eugene F. Ware,

To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe,to plant seeds and watch their renewal of life -this is the commonest delight of the race,the most satisfactory thing a man can do.

Charles Dudley Warner, journalist

The farmers in Kansas are sorely in need of a credit system meeting their special requirements, that they may more readily obtain money on short or long time for their farming operations, or that they may become owners of farms.

Arthur Capper, politician

Following the war in Europe a large increase of European immigration to the United States is to be expected, of which the largest part is and always has been made up of men skilled in farming.

Arthur Capper, politician

Remember, the Arctic didn't have any ice. And the Northwest Passage was wide open. They were raising grapes in Scotland for God sakes, had a huge winery. Iceland was a farming community. As some of the glaciers retreated they found villages that were covered with ice.

Don Young, politician

I am also the product of a place called Paint Creek. Doesn't have a zip code. It's too small to be called a town along the rolling plains of Texas. We grew dryland cotton and wheat, and when I wasn't farming or attending Paint Creek Rural School, I was generally over at Troop 48 working on my Eagle Scout award.

Rick Perry, politician

I'm glad I don't have to make a living farming. Too much hard work. Too many variables you don't have control over, like, is it going to rain? All I can say is, god bless the real farmers out there.

Fuzzy Zoeller, athlete

If you ask an economist what's driven economic growth, it's been major advances in things that mattered - the mechanization of farming, mass manufacturing, things like that. The problem is, our society is not organized around doing that.

Larry Page, businessman

I grew up in Palestine, West Virginia, which is mostly a farming community; there aren't a lot of jobs.

Jessica Lynch, soldier

Farming as we do it is hunting, and in the sea we act like barbarians.

Jacques Yves Cousteau, explorer

It is easier to have faith that God will support each House of Hospitality and Farming Commune and supply our needs in the way of food and money to pay bills, than it is to keep a strong, hearty, living faith in each individual around us - to see Christ in him.

Dorothy Day,

No one hates his job so heartily as a farmer.

H. L. Mencken, writer

My family was a poor farming family, and we lived under absolute segregation.

Alice Walker, author

Why should conservationists have a positive interest in... farming? There are lots of reasons, but the plainest is: Conservationists eat.

Wendell Berry, poet

Urban conservationists may feel entitled to be unconcerned about food production because they are not farmers. But they can't be let off so easily, for they are all farming by proxy.

Wendell Berry, poet

The land too poor for any other crop, is best for raising men.

R. Pocock,

Although farming of any sort was almost as impossible in the plains as in the dry regions of winter rains farther west, the abundance of buffaloes made life much easier in many respects.

Ellsworth Huntington, educator

I never dreamed about being an actor, because that was out of reach. Coming from a small town that was big in farming, and also big in clothing factories, you don't dream about being a professional football player or an actor.

Herschel Walker, athlete

Farming implements are as cheap in Sydney as in England.

Charles Sturt, explorer

The more we pour the big machines, the fuel, the pesticides, the herbicides, the fertilizer and chemicals into farming, the more we knock out the mechanism that made it all work in the first place.

David R. Brower, environmentalist

Farmers are philosophical. They have learned that it is less wearing to shrug than to beat their breasts.

Ruth Stout,

There are a range of associated impacts related to increasing temperatures which affect both evaporation rates and river systems, which are already over stressed, and these will hit farming communities and the health of crop lands.

Peter Garrett, musician

By avarice and selfishness, and a groveling habit, from which none of us is free, of regarding the soil as property, or the means of acquiring property chiefly, the landscape is deformed, husbandry is degraded with us, and the farmer leads the meanest of lives. He knows Nature but as a robber.

Henry David Thoreau, author

There are three easy ways of losing money - racing is the quickest, women the most pleasant, and farming the most certain.

Lord Amherst, soldier

It is sad, no doubt, to exhaust one's strength and one's days in cleaving the bosom of this jealous earth, which compels us to wring from it the treasures of its fertility, when a bit of the blackest and coarsest bread is, at the end of the day's work, the sole recompense and the sole profit attaching to so arduous a toil.

George Sand, novelist

There is, of course, a gold mine or a buried treasure on every mortgaged homestead. Whether the farmer ever digs for it or not, it is there, haunting his daydreams when the burden of debt is most unbearable.

Fawn M. Brodie, author

The great cities rest upon our broad and fertile prairies. Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms, and grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.

William Jennings Bryan, lawyer

Our farmers round, well pleased with constant gain, like other farmers, flourish and complain.

George Crabbe, poet

The first farmer was the first man. All historic nobility rests on the possession and use of land.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet

There is no gilding of setting sun or glamour of poetry to light up the ferocious and endless toil of the farmers wives.

Hamlin Garland, novelist

He felt with the force of a revelation that to throw up the clods of earth manfully is as beneficent as to revolutionize the world. It was not the matter of the work, but the mind that went into it, that counted -- and the man who was not content to do small things well would leave great things undone.

Ellen Glasgow, novelist

Farmers only worry during the growing season, but towns people worry all the time.

Edward W. Howe,

Whenever there are in any country uncultivated lands and unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been so far extended as to violate natural right. The earth is given as a common stock for man to labor and live on. The small landowners are the most precious part of a state.

Thomas Jefferson, president

Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans upon his hoe and gazes on the ground, the emptiness of ages in his face, and on his back the burden of the world.

Edwin Markham, poet
