The first farmer was the first man. All historic nobility rests on the possession and use of land.

Love that quote - it makes me think of ancient Rome and their ideal of the farming emperor - you know, that guy who was ploughing his fields and they came and told him they were at war and needed his leadership so he went and ruled then the moment the war ended he resigned and went back to his farm. You'd think all those hours studying Roman history for Latin would have burned his name in my mind, but nope, got nothing.
