“You do not know which is the real job of a farmer: whether plowing, seeding, scything or at the same time eating and drinking fresh food, bearing children and breathing freely, as all these things are closely linked, and when the farmer does one of them he fulfils the other. Everything is his job, and nothing is his job in the social meaning of the word. It is his life.”

(Jean Giono Lettera ai contadini sulla povertà e la pace)
