Personally, I have been very impressed by the slow food movement. It is about celebrating the culture of food, of sharing the extraordinary knowledge, developed over millennia, of the traditions involved with quality food production, of the sheer joy and pleasure of consuming food together. Especially within the context of family life, this has to be one of the highest forms of cultural activity. Prince Charles
Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you're a thousand miles from the cornfield. D.Eisenhower
Animal factories are one more sign of the extent to which our technological capacities have advanced faster than our ethics. We plow under habitats of other animals to grow hybrid corn that fattens our genetically engineered animals for slaughter. We make free species extinct and domesticate species into biomachines. We build cruelty into our diet. J. Mason (included cause I've met him and he's passionate and thought provoking!)
Life on a farm is a school of patience; you can't hurry the crops or make an ox in two days. H. Alain
