Famous quotes containing the words fields and/or jockey:

    Or seen the furrows shine but late upturned,
    And where the fieldfare followed in the rear,
    When all the fields around lay bound and hoar
    Beneath a thick integument of snow.
    So by God’s cheap economy made rich
    To go upon my winter’s task again.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Radio news is bearable. This is due to the fact that while the news is being broadcast the disc jockey is not allowed to talk.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1951)
