Agriculture

"This leads to the further reflection, that no other human occupation
opens so wide a field for the profitable and agreeable combination of
labor with cultivated thought, as agriculture. I know of nothing so
pleasant to the mind, as the discovery of anything which is at once
new and valuable — nothing which so lightens and sweetens toil, as
the hopeful pursuit of such discovery. And how vast, and how varied
a field is agriculture, for such discovery. The mind, already trained to
thought, in the country school, or higher school, cannot fail to find there
an exhaustless source of profitable enjoyment."
Abraham Lincoln
