I have been collecting various quotes I like about farms, farming, homesteading, et cetera. Today I am going to share some of those with you.
“There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.”
~ Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”
~ Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution
“Farming is a profession of hope”
~ Brian Brett
Family farms and small businesses are the backbone of our communities.
~ Tom Allen
“Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral.”
~ Frank Lloyd Wright
and anyone who owns, or who has owned, chickens knows anything falling from the sky makes this next one so very true in behavior.
“The Sky is falling!”
~ Chicken Little, children’s fable
There are so many more and I will keep adding.
