Remember To Thank A Farmer...

"This hard work will always be done by one kind of man; not by scheming speculators, nor by soldiers, nor professors, nor readers of Tennyson; but by men of endurance—deep-chested, long- winded, tough, slow and sure, and timely."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The farmer stands well on the world. Plain in manners as in dress, he would not shine in palaces; he is absolutely unknown and inadmissible therein; living or dying, he never shall be heard of in them; yet the drawing-room heroes put down beside him would shrivel in his presence; he solid and unexpressive, they expressed to gold-leaf."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The glory of the farmer is that, in the division of labors, it is his part to create. All trade rests at last on his primitive activity."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
