2013 QWI AGRICULTURAL MOTTOS

• A person who rolls up his sleeves seldom loses his shirt.
• In a world of disposable goods, some things are worth keeping.
• GOD made rainy days so gardeners could do their house work.
• Don't criticize a farmer with your mouth full.
• Do not judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
• If you sow a seed of kindness, you will reap a sheaf of joy.
• If you plant character in the home, it will grow in the community.
• Taste of autumn to enjoy.
• Take time to plan. It is the secret of many things, even our own garden.
• If you don't plant, it won't grow.
• Conserve energy and save dollars.
• Face the sun and you won't see the shadows.
• Apple pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze.
• A kindly act is a seed well sown.
• A farm spotlights the character of people, some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses and some don't turn up at all.
• A farmer is a man outstanding in his field.
• There's no such thing as a bad weed, only a flower in the wrong place.
• People who think they could run the earth should begin with a small garden.
• When planning for a year, plant corn. When planning for a decade, plant trees. When planning for life, train and educate people.
• Food fake out. Have you ever bought something buttery to find it contains no butter? Fruit pictured on label, but no fruit inside?
