It is only in the country that we can get to know a person or a book. ~Cyril Connolly, The Unquiet Grave, 1945
I have no relish for the country; it is a kind of healthy grave. ~Sydney Smith

I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand. ~Leonardo da Vinci

As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children. ~John Adams
