It has to have shaped me. I may even have contributed to it in minor ways, for culture is a pyramid to which each of us brings a stone. Wallace Stegner

Next to nothing for weight, And since they grew duller From contact with earth, Next to nothing for color. Next to nothing for use. But a crop is a crop, And who's to say where The harvest shall stop? Robert Frost
