My kind of quotes ;)

Just received the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed catalog in the mail! The best part about this season is when the darkest day of the year is past, and you can look forward to spring, green things growing, and baby animals being born.

Enjoy these quotes from the catalog :P



"Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses." ~ George Washington Carver

"Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization." ~ Daniel Webster

"No other human occupation opens so wide a field for the profitable and agreeable combination of labor with cultivated thought, as agriculture." ~ Abraham Lincoln



"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help." ~ Ronald Reagan

"The federal government has sponsored research that has produced a tomato that is perfect in every respect, except that you can't eat it. We should make every effort to make sure this disease, often referred to as 'progress', doesn't spread." ~ Andy Rooney

"Blessed are the young for they shall inherit the national debt." ~ Herbert Hoover

"What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson



"Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you're a thousand miles from the corn field." ~ Dwight David Eisenhower


As young adults and adults, are you going to make excuses for why you aren't doing your share to make this country a better place, plead ignorance, or are you going to do what you can with what you have?... make sacrifices... you will be able to accomplish what you set your heart on, if God is with you.

Vote with your food dollar. Read, study, and never stop learning about the Truth. Educate your family and friends. Plant a garden. Support farmers in your community who are fighting for what is right, even when it comes at great cost to themselves. They need our help and defense against our oppressive government.

Actually, it probably arrived at the same time, I just now had a chance to sit down and dig through it ;)
