My favorite quotes from book:

  • It’s not possible to work out every detail in life, but one has to be bold.
  • Bored? No. Not ever. Only uncreative people are bored.
  • In dreams, words fail to express the heart, but the soul knows of the longing.
  • Occupy until I come, scripture tells us. Multiply is what that word occupy means. Here is our chance to do that, to save this farm, and all it requires is using what God gave us, our feet and our perseverance, our effort and a little inconvenience.
