Famous quotes containing the word hampshire:

    Not even New Hampshire farms are much for sale.
    The farm I made my home on in the mountains
    I had to take by force rather than buy.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Anything I can say about New Hampshire
    Will serve almost as well about Vermont,
    Excepting that they differ in their mountains.
    The Vermont mountains stretch extended straight;
    New Hampshire mountains curl up in a coil.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
