Country Status Updates

People tell me that the countryside must always be stupid and backward, and I get angry, as if it were said that only townspeople had immortal souls, and that it was only in the city that the flame of divinity breathed into the first men had an unobscured glow.

I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand.

Ironically, rural America has become viewed by a growing number of Americans as having a higher quality of life not because of what it has, but rather because of what it does not have!

Anybody can be good in the country.

There is scarcely any writer who has not celebrated the happiness of rural privacy, and delighted himself and his reader with the melody of birds, the whisper of groves, and the murmur of rivulets.

Nor rural sights alone, but rural sounds,
Exhilarate the spirit, and restore
The tone of languid nature.

As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration.I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children.

I suppose the pleasure of country life lies really in the eternally renewed evidences of the determination to live.

My father asserted that there was no better place to bring up a family than in a rural environment.... Theres something about getting up at 5 a.m., feeding the stock and chickens, and milking a couple of cows before breakfast that gives you a lifelong respect for the price of butter and eggs.
