History... celebrates the battlefields whereon we meet our death, but scorns to speak of the ploughed whereby we thrive; it knows the names of the king's bastards, but cannot tell us the origin of wheat. That is the way of human folly.

Jean-Henri Fabre

Omnium rerum ex quibus aliquid acquitur nihil est agricultura melius, nihil uberius, nihil dulcius, nihil homine, nihil libero dignius.
