Famous quotes with Grazing

  • The only freedom supposed to be left to the masses is that of grazing on the ration of simulacra the system distributes to each individual.
    Michel De Certeau
  • The mere brute pleasure of reading - the sort of pleasure a cow must have in grazing.
    Lord Chesterfield
  • I sincerely believe that there's room for cutting down trees for forestry and grazing, so as we all get to eat. Everyone has to compromise.
    Steve Irwin
  • The river route is certainly preferable, as it affords good grazing and an abundance of water.
    William Whipple
  • It would be quite false to say that competition is the only relation that obtains between species. Mutual dependence is in general quite as important. Each kind exists within an ecosystem, and needs the others to keep the system going. Thus, grazing animals on the African plains co-exist because each specializes in eating some particular kind of plant, and needs the others to keep the whole pasture at a balanced level. They depend, too, on each other's specialized capacities to give warning of danger. … each also depends for survival on innumerable others, such as the insects which pollinate the plants, the fauna of their intestines and of course their predators. It is unthinkable that any species should be an island.
    Mary Midgley
