Children from humble families must be taught how to command just as other children must be taught how to obey.
(Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), German philosopher, classical scholar, critic of culture. Friedrich Nietzsche, Sämtliche Werke: Kritische Studienausgabe, vol. 2, p. 268, eds. Giorgio Colli and Mazzino Montinari, Berlin, de Gruyter (1980). Human, All-Too-Human, "Woman and Child," aphorism 395, "Teaching to Command," (1878).)
Self-centeredness and selfishness has [sic] become the farmer's way of life ... instead of neighborliness, conservation, and families.
(Lou Anne Kling, U.S. government worker. As quoted in The Great Divide, book 1, section 3, by Studs Terkel (1988).
Kling was state coordinator for the farm advocate program of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.)
