Shegog Farms quotes by P.Sainath
#1. Who constitutes the nation? Only the elite?Or do the hundreds of millions of poor in India also make up the nation? Are their interests never identified with national interest? Or is there more than one nation? That is the question you often run up against in some of India's poorest areas. Areas where extremely poor people go into destitution making way for firing ranges, jet fighter plants, coal mines, power projects, dams, sanctuaries, prawn and shrimp farms, even poultry farms. If the costs they bear are the 'price' of development, then the rest of the 'nation' is having one endless free lunch. #Quote by P.Sainath
Shegog Farms quotes by Roger Kahn
#2. Why do we remember the Boys of Summer? We remember because we were young when they were, of course. But more, we remember because we feel the ache of guilt and regret. While they were running, jumping, leaping, we were slouched behind typewriters, smoking and drinking, pretending to some mystic communion with men we didn't really know or like. Men from ghettos we didn't dare visit, or rural farms we passed at sixty miles an hour. Loving what they did on the field, we could forget how superior we felt towards them the rest of the time. By cheering them on we proved we had nothing to do with the injustices that kept their lives separate from ours. There's nothing sordid or false about the Boys of Summer. Only our memories smell like sweaty jockstraps. #Quote by Roger Kahn
Shegog Farms quotes by Jane Poynter
#3. Shrimp farms are a scourge on the earth, frankly, from an environmental point of view. They pour huge amounts of pollutants into the ocean. They also pollute their next-door neighbors. #Quote by Jane Poynter
Shegog Farms quotes by Ulysses S. Grant
#4. The one thing I never want to see again is a military parade. When I resigned from the army and went to a farm I was happy. When the rebellion came, I returned to the service because it was a duty. I had no thought of rank; all I did was try and make. #Quote by Ulysses S. Grant
Shegog Farms quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#5. There is a glaring reason that the necessary total ban on nontherapeutic use of antibiotics hasn't happened: The factory farm industry, allied with the pharmaceutical industry, has more power than public-health professionals. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Shegog Farms quotes by Candice Swanepoel
#6. I grew up in a farm in South Africa and I was scouted there and they sent me to Europe. It's kind of been blessed, since then it happened all so fast. #Quote by Candice Swanepoel
Shegog Farms quotes by Joel Salatin
#7. Farms and food production should be, I submit, at least as important as who pierced their navel in Hollywood this week. Please tell me I'm not the only one who believes this. Please. As a culture, we think we're well educated, but I'm not sure that what we've learned necessarily helps us survive. #Quote by Joel Salatin
Shegog Farms quotes by Billy Graham
#8. After I graduated from high school, one of the former workers on our farm asked if I would be willing to join him in selling Fuller brushes through the summer. It seemed like a perfect way to make some money for college. And being away from my parents and learning to make my own way gave me self confidence. #Quote by Billy Graham
Shegog Farms quotes by Daniel Silva
#9. A moshav is a cooperative community of individual farms, which is different from a kibbutz." "Very #Quote by Daniel Silva
Shegog Farms quotes by Abbie Cornish
#10. I'm one of five kids and we lived on a massive farm in New South Wales with my mum and dad. #Quote by Abbie Cornish
Shegog Farms quotes by Jennifer McKeithen
#11. A twinge of fear entered Gwenwhyfar's heart. It was the first she had heard of the sea farms lying in the path of danger. She wondered what had befallen a different Norseman of her acquaintance. Had her poor bodyguard, Finn, perished in one of those raids? #Quote by Jennifer McKeithen
Shegog Farms quotes by Bill Mollison
#12. Brambles, in particular, protect and nourish young fruit trees, and on farms bramble clumps (blackberry or one of its related cultivars) can be used to exclude deer and cattle from newly set trees. As the trees (apple, quince, plum, citrus, fig) age, and the brambles are shaded out, hoofed animals come to eat fallen fruit, and the mature trees (7 plus years old) are sufficiently hardy to withstand browsing. Our forest ancestors may well have followed some such sequences for orchard evolution, assisted by indigenous birds and mammals. #Quote by Bill Mollison
Shegog Farms quotes by Randall Jarrell
#13. The moon rises. The red cubs rolling
In the ferns by the rotten oak
Stare over a marsh and a meadow
To the farm's white wisp of smoke.
A spark burns, high in heaven.
Deer thread the blossoming rows
Of the old orchard, rabbits
Hop by the well-curb. The cock crows
From the tree by the widow's walk;
Two stars in the trees to the west,
Are snared, and an owl's soft cry
Runs like a breath through the forest.
Here too, though death is hushed, though joy
Obscures, like night, their wars,
The beings of this world are swept
By the Strife that moves the stars. #Quote by Randall Jarrell
Shegog Farms quotes by Don Marquis
#14. Most of the people living in New York have come here from the far to try to make enough money to go back to the farm #Quote by Don Marquis
Shegog Farms quotes by John Etherington
#15. Italy police arrest 8 in Mafia wind farms plot. Operation "Aeolus," named after the ancient Greek god of winds, netted eight suspects, arrested in the Trapani area of western Sicily [and on the Italian mainland]. Police in Trapani said the local Mafia bribed city officials in nearby Mazara del Vallo so the town would invest in wind farms to produce energy. (Associated Press, 2009 [Google hosted]) #Quote by John Etherington
Shegog Farms quotes by Christopher Columbus
#16. A hundred castellanoes are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and it is very general and there are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten are now in demand. #Quote by Christopher Columbus
Shegog Farms quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#17. How does one hate a country, or love one? Tibe talks about it; I lack the trick of it. I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plowland in the hills; but what is the sense of giving a boundary to all that, of giving it a name and ceasing to love where the name ceases to apply? What is love of one's country; is it hate of one's uncountry? Then it's not a good thing. Is it simply self-love? That's a good thing, but one mustn't make a virtue of it, or a profession ... Insofar as I love life, I love the hills of the Domain of Estre, but that sort of love does not have a boundary-line of hate. And beyond that, I am ignorant, I hope. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Shegog Farms quotes by Sharon Gannon
#18. Some people may argue that if the animals are treated humanely prior to being slaughtered, this justifies their confinement and slaughter. Is it ethical to rob beings of their freedom but give them a comfortable prison and provide them with food until they become fat enough to be slaughtered? Any way you look at it, farms are places where animals are kept in preparation to be slaughtered and ultimately eaten as food. #Quote by Sharon Gannon
Shegog Farms quotes by George Washington
#19. At my age, and in my circumstances, what sinister object, or personal emolument had I to seek after, in this life? The growing infirmities of age and the increasing love of retirement, daily confirm my decided predilection for domestic life: and the great Searcher of human hearts is my witness, that I have no wish, which aspires beyond the humble and happy lot of living and dying a private citizen on my own farm. #Quote by George Washington
Shegog Farms quotes by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
#20. The factory meat industry has polluted thousands of miles of America's rivers, killed billions of fish, pushed tens of thousands of family farmers off their land, sickened and killed thousands of U.S. citizens, and treated millions of farm animals with unspeakable and unnecessary cruelty. #Quote by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Shegog Farms quotes by Ingrid Newkirk
#21. There's nothing humane about the flesh of animals who have had one or two or even three improvements made in their singularly rotten lives on today's factory farms. #Quote by Ingrid Newkirk
Shegog Farms quotes by Shenita Etwaroo
#22. Factory farms don't even consider animals to be real living things. They consider them to be protein units per square foot."
-Shenita Etwaroo #Quote by Shenita Etwaroo
Shegog Farms quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#23. I was raised to farm work. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Shegog Farms quotes by George Washington Carver
#24. I believe that the great Creator has put ores and oil on this Earth to give us a breathing spell ... as we exhaust them, we must be prepared to fall back on our farms, which are God's true storehouse. We can learn to synthesize materials for every human need from things that grow. #Quote by George Washington Carver
Shegog Farms quotes by El-P
#25. The worst part is that if you become part of a major - all these independent labels become farm teams for your corporate parent. Basically, you do all the work for years, blowing up an artist - you discover them, blow them up, you build their fan base. And then that artist is like, "Okay, now I'm here. Now I want more. I want to be bigger." And you're either going to be able to accommodate them, you're going to be able to figure out how to take that step with them, or you're going to lose them. #Quote by El-P
Shegog Farms quotes by Gloria Allred
#26. It's not my fault if the media and the public are more interested in Tiger Woods than in women farm workers. #Quote by Gloria Allred
Shegog Farms quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#27. I was more independent than any farmer in Concord, for I was not anchored to a house or farm, but could follow the bent of my genius, which is a very crooked one, every moment. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Shegog Farms quotes by Anne Stevenson
#28. Blackbirds are the cellos of the deep farms. #Quote by Anne Stevenson
Shegog Farms quotes by Joanne Froggatt
#29. I grew up on a farm - it was a lovely life; we'd make tree houses all day - and my parents worked from home. #Quote by Joanne Froggatt
Shegog Farms quotes by Barack Obama
#30. I do think that there is a big difference between family farms and agri-business, and one of the distressing things that I think has occurred is with consolidation of farm lands. You've seen large agri-businesses benefit from enormous profits from existing farm programs, and I think we should be focusing most of those programs on those family farmers. #Quote by Barack Obama
Shegog Farms quotes by William Jennings Bryan
#31. Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country. #Quote by William Jennings Bryan
Shegog Farms quotes by Colin Firth
#32. When I visited coffee farms in Ethiopia, the farmers could not believe we spend a week's wages in their country on a cup of coffee in ours, because they see so little of the profits. Oxfam's fair trade campaign helps right this wrong. #Quote by Colin Firth
Shegog Farms quotes by Nancy Pelosi
#33. As many of you know, I came from San Francisco. We don't have a lot of farms there. Well, we do have one - it's a mushroom farm, so you know what that means. #Quote by Nancy Pelosi
Shegog Farms quotes by John Steinbeck
#34. The man sitting in the iron seat did not look like a man; gloved, goggled, rubber dust mask over nose and mouth, he was part of the monster, a robot in the seat. The thunder of the cylinders sounded through the country, became one with the air and the earth, so that earth and air muttered in sympathetic vibration. The driver could not control it–straight across country it went, cutting through a dozen farms and straight back. A twitch at the controls could swerve the cat', but the driver's hands could not twitch because the monster that built the tractor, the monster that sent that tractor out, had somehow got into the driver's hands, into his brain and muscle, had goggled him and muzzled him–goggled his mind, muzzled his speech, goggled his perception, muzzled his protest. He could not see the land as it was, he could not smell the power of the earth. He sat in an iron seat and stepped on iron pedals. He could not cheer or beat or curse or encourage the extension of his power, and because of this he could not cheer or whip or curse or encourage himself. He did now know or own or trust or beseech the land. If a seed dropped did not germinate, it was no skin off his ass. If the young thrusting plant withered in drought or drowned in a flood of rain, it was no more to the driver than to the tractor.
He loved the land no more than the bank loved the land. He could admire the tractor–its machined surfaces, its surge of power, the roar of its detonating cylinders; but it was #Quote by John Steinbeck
Shegog Farms quotes by Jana Bommersbach
#35. The farm labor movement saw him as a racist. He seemed to delight in the most outrageous snubs. Farm labor organizer Cesar Chavez was in the governor's outer office, waiting to plead against a bill outlawing unions on Arizona farms, as Governor Williams was inside his office signing the bill. That action launched a recall effort against Williams in the mid-seventies - a drive that apparently collected the required signatures but was subverted when the Republican attorney general found a nitpicking technicality that disqualified most of the petitions. This was the man who held the fate of Winnie Ruth Judd in his hands. #Quote by Jana Bommersbach
Shegog Farms quotes by Arlo Crawford
#36. When I was still working at the museum, every project had a checklist, a clear set of milestones. I worked until I satisfied these requirements, and then I put the project away. On the farm, though, we were immersed in the summer, a wide, warm ocean with no shore in sight and no landmarks to swim toward. Now we rested in that same ocean, floating as it moved around us. #Quote by Arlo Crawford
Shegog Farms quotes by Rachel Carson
#37. There was once a town in the heart of America where all life seemed to live in harmony with its surroundings. The town lay in the midst of a checkerboard of prosperous farms, with fields of grain and hillsides of orchards where, in spring, white clouds of bloom drifted above the green fields. In autumn, oak and maple and birch set up a blaze of color that flamed and flickered across a backdrop of pines. Then foxes barked in the hills and deer silently crossed the fields, half hidden in the mists of the fall mornings.

Along the roads, laurel, viburnum, and alder, great ferns and wildflowers delighted the traveler's eye through much of the year. Even in winter the roadsides were places of beauty, where countless birds came to feed on the berries and on the seed heads of the dried weeds rising above the snow. The countryside was, in fact, famous for the abundance and variety of its bird life, and when the flood of migrants was pouring through in spring and fall people traveled from great distances to observe them. Others came to fish the streams, which flowed clear and cold out of the hills and contained shady pools where trout lay. So it had been from the days many years ago when the first settlers raised their homes, sank their wells, and built their barns.

Then a strange blight crept over the area and everything began to change. Some evil spell had settled on the community: mysterious maladies swept the flocks of chickens, the cattle, and sheep sickene #Quote by Rachel Carson
Shegog Farms quotes by Julius Malema
#38. The farms you live in will be yours for free. When mineworkers strike, it will be to complain that we are giving them too much money. #Quote by Julius Malema
Shegog Farms quotes by Preston Manning
#39. As a result of listening to Aberhart, my father decided to leave the farm in 1927 to study at Calgary Prophetic Bible Institute, Aberhart's training school. #Quote by Preston Manning
Shegog Farms quotes by Ann Richards
#40. We saw farms go on the auction block while we bought food from foreign countries. Well, that's wrong. #Quote by Ann Richards
Shegog Farms quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#41. The journalists think that they cannot say too much in favor of such "improvements" in husbandry; it is a safe theme, like piety;but as for the beauty of one of these "model farms," I would as lief see a patent churn and a man turning it. They are, commonly, places merely where somebody is making money, it may be counterfeiting. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Shegog Farms quotes by Naomi Klein
#42. Communal forests around the world are being turned into privatized tree farms and preserves so their owners can collect something called "carbon credits," a lucrative scam I'll explore later. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Shegog Farms quotes by Taylor Swift
#43. I grew up on a Christmas tree farm in Reading, PA. It was the most magical fun childhood. We had grape arbours and we would make jam with my mom. My dad would go to work and he'd come home. He'd clean out stalls and fix split-row fences. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Shegog Farms quotes by Doc Hastings
#44. With my support, the House of Representatives recently voted to permanently repeal the death tax so that family farms and businesses can be passed down to children and grandchildren. #Quote by Doc Hastings
