Emerson, Ralph Waldo - Agriculture, Business and Commerce, Nature
"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. He stands close to Nature; he obtains from the earth the bread and the meat. The food which was not, he causes to be."
- from 'Farming', chapter VI in Society and Solitude (1870)
- Ralph Waldo Emerson (American essayist, philosopher, and poet; b. 1803 - d. 1882)
