The word agriculture, after all, does not mean "agriscience," much less "agribusiness." It means "cultivation of land." And cultivation is at the root of the sense both of culture and of cult. The ideas of tillage and worship are thus joined in culture. And these words all come from an Indo-European root meaning both "to revolve" and "to dwell." To live, to survive on the earth, to care for the soil, and to worship, all are bound at the root to the idea of a cycle. It is only by understanding the cultural complexity and largeness of the concept of agriculture that we can see the threatening diminishments implied by the term "agribusiness."

A man seeks his own destiny and no other, said the judge. Wil or nill. Any man who could discover his own fate and elect therefore some opposite course could only come at last to that selfsame reckoning at the same appointed time, for each man's destiny is as large as the world he inhabits and contains within it all opposites as well. The desert upon which so many have been broken is vast and calls for largeness of heart but it is also ultimately empty. It is hard, it is barren. Its very nature is stone.Cormac McCarthy Largeness Sayings By Cormac McCarthy: A man seeks his own destiny and no other, said the judge. Wil or nill.

I don't know the word for the feeling if there is one, but it's that feeling you get - or I hope you get it, anyway - when you realize the smallness of you, and the largeness of Everything Else. I'm not saying God necessarily. I'm saying you're outside at night and it's raining and you don't have an umbrella and you're running to get inside but then you stop and maybe you hold your hands palms up and feel the rain pound against your fingerprints and soak through your clothes and your wet hair against your neck and you realize how amazing it is while the thunder cracks.John Green Largeness Sayings By John Green: I don't know the word for the feeling if there is one, but it's that

No, she did not envy her eighteen-year- old self at all. But
Smallness is subversive, because smallness can creep into smaller places and wreak transformation at the most vulnerable, cellular level.

Literature doesn't have a country. Shakespeare is an African writer. His Falstaff, for example, is very African in his appetite for life, his largeness of spirit.

She crawled into her bed and curled into a tiny ball. She was suddenly aware of how small the space was that she was occupying compared to the largeness of the world. With a heavy pain in her chest she closed her eyes. She no longer resisted sleep for she knew that her dreadful nightmares were unavoidable. It was about time she got used to them.

Lifting up his hand to her, he said, Here, madam, take the hand, or rather, as I may say, the executioner of all earthy miscreants-take, I say, that hand which never woman touched before; no, not even she herself who has entire possession of my whole body; nor do I hold it up to you that you may kiss it, but that you may observe the contexture of the sinews, the ligament of the muscles, and the largeness and dilation of the veins; whence you may conclude how strong that arm must be to which such a hand is joined.Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra Largeness Sayings By Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra: Lifting up his hand to her, he said, Here, madam, take the hand, or rather,

The willingness to forgive is a sign of spiritual and emotional maturity. It is one of the great virtues to which we all should aspire.

or both
when needed?

Jesus said, Not everyone is mature enough to live a married life. It requires a certain aptitude and grace. Marriage isn't for everyone. Some, from birth seemingly, never give marriage a thought. Others never get asked - or accepted. And some decide not to get married for kingdom reasons. But if you're capable of growing into the largeness of marriage, do it.Eugene H. Peterson Largeness Sayings By Eugene H. Peterson: Jesus said, Not everyone is mature enough to live a married life. It requires a
How fickle it is, memory - preferring some days to others, granting first a blue sky, offering next the sound of laughter, swelling our remembrances until a largeness seeps into the grain of things and memory itself becomes billowed and flapping.Sonja Livingston Largeness Sayings By Sonja Livingston: How fickle it is, memory - preferring some days to others, granting first a blue
Tess seemed to Clare to exhibit a dignified largeness both of disposition and physique, an almost regnant power, possibly because he knew that at that preternatural time hardly any woman so well endowed in person as she was likely to be walking in the open air within the boundaries of his horizon; very few in all England. Fair women are usually asleep at mid-summer dawns. She was close at hand, and the rest were nowhere.Thomas Hardy Largeness Sayings By Thomas Hardy: Tess seemed to Clare to exhibit a dignified largeness both of disposition and physique, an

The world looks for happiness through self-assertion. The Christian knows that joy is found in self-abandonment. 'If a man will let himself be lost for My sake,' Jesus said, 'he will find his true self.' A Christian woman's true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate
humble obedience
but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested.
Elisabeth Elliot Largeness Sayings By Elisabeth Elliot: The world looks for happiness through self-assertion. The Christian knows that joy is found in
If there was a true moment that Tiger Lily fell so in love with Peter she could never turn back, it was that night, when he shivered and walked and told her he was warm, and told her he loved her so much.

As she walked home that night, she was shaking from the largeness of it.Jodi Lynn Anderson Largeness Sayings By Jodi Lynn Anderson: If there was a true moment that Tiger Lily fell so in love with Peter
Before us, over the tree tops, we beheld a great field of open sea to the East. Sheer above us rose single pines, black with precipices.

Not a man, not a sail upon the sea; the very largeness of the view increased the sense of solitude.Robert Louis Stevenson Largeness Sayings By Robert Louis Stevenson: Before us, over the tree tops, we beheld a great field of open sea to

They all - Malcolm with his houses, Willem with his girlfriends, JB with his paints, he with his razors - sought comfort, something that was theirs alone, something to hold off the terrifying largeness, the impossibility, of the world, of the relentlessness of its minutes, its hours, its days.Hanya Yanagihara Largeness Sayings By Hanya Yanagihara: They all - Malcolm with his houses, Willem with his girlfriends, JB with his paints,
Satan was the most celebrated of Alpine guides, when he took Jesus to the top of an exceeding high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the earth.

Chesterton Largeness Sayings By G.K. Chesterton: Satan was the most celebrated of Alpine guides, when he took Jesus to the top

Many people have found prayer impossible because they thought they should only pray for wonderful but remote needs they actually had little or no interest in or even knowledge of. Prayer simply dies from efforts to pray about 'good things' that honestly do not matter to us. The way to get to meaningful prayer for those good things is to start by praying for what we are truly interested in. The circle of our interests will inevitably grow in the largeness of God's love." --Dallas WillardDallas Willard Largeness Sayings By Dallas Willard: Many people have found prayer impossible because they thought they should only pray for wonderful

Flannery O'Connor ... points out that 'a story really isn't good unless it successfully resists paraphrase. ...' ... Paraphrasing can force us into deeper levels of both story and self. O'Connor also says that a good story 'hangs on and expands the mind.' ... Most importantly, as we explore the largeness of stories, their 'macro' possibilities, we are forced further into the largeness of our own lives. The 'hidden' story, made visible, can be that which is most difficult to confront in our experiences and, at the same time, the story that demands to be told.Karen Salyer McElmurray Largeness Sayings By Karen Salyer McElmurray: Flannery O'Connor ... points out that 'a story really isn't good unless it successfully resists
To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others, as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken, a case among cases, a world among worlds, that the largeness of mind, without which objectivity is self-congratulation and tolerance a sham, comes.Clifford Geertz Largeness Sayings By Clifford Geertz: To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing
Largeness is a lifelong matter. You grow because you are not content not to. You are like a beaver that chews constantly because if it doesn't, it's teeth grow long and lock. You grow because you are a grower; you're large because you can't stand to be small.Wallace Stegner Largeness Sayings By Wallace Stegner: Largeness is a lifelong matter.

God's love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic, His purpose titanic, his verdicts oceanic.

She opened her curtains, and looked out towards the bit of road that lay in view, with fields beyond outside the entrance-gates. On the road there was a man with a bundle on his back and a woman carrying her baby; in the field she could see figures moving - perhaps the shepherd with his dog. Far off in the bending sky was the pearly light; and she felt the largeness of the world and the manifold wakings of men to labor and endurance. She was a part of that involuntary, palpitating life, and could neither look out on it from her luxurious shelter as a mere spectator, nor hide her eyes in selfish complaining.George Eliot Largeness Sayings By George Eliot: She opened her curtains, and looked out towards the bit of road that lay in
The real world is devoid of narratives, after all. Narratives are just a thing that our brains do with facts in order to draw a line around the incomprehensible largeness of reality and wrestle it into something learnable and manipulable. Existence is devoid of plot, theme, and most of all moral.Charles Stross Largeness Sayings By Charles Stross: The real world is devoid of narratives, after all. Narratives are just a thing that
The personal ego identifies with a very limited part of the self and prevents you from recognizing the largeness of who you really are.
