  • Pumpkins first originated in Central America and Mexico. Winter squash are native to northern Argentina, near the Andes. Over many years these gourds have become a favorite of home gardeners due to their hardiness, productivity, and versatility in the kitchen.
    Marie-France Kern
  • One basic weakness in a conservation system based wholly on economic motives is that most members of the land community have no economic value. Wildflowers and songbirds are examples. Of the 22,000 higher plants and animals native to Wisconsin, it is doubtful whether more than 5 per cent can be sold, fed, eaten, or otherwise put to economic use. Yet these creatures are members of the biotic community, and if (as I believe) its stability depends on its integrity, they are entitled to continuance.
    Aldo Leopold
  • Strength, power, and majesty, belong to man ; They make the glory native to his life ; But sweetness is a woman's attribute — By that she has reigned, and by that will reign.
    Letitia Elizabeth Landon
