a beautiful struggle

Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is, who shall have sacrificed part of himself to his farm or country, fought to save it, struggled to make it beautiful. Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart.
--Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944) French Pilot and Author
