"Whoever could make two ears of corn ... to grow upon a spot of ground, where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind ... than do the whole race of politicians." #QotD

"Whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass, to grow upon a spot of ground, where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country, than do the whole race of politicians." 

          ~ Jonathan Swift, from his Gulliver's Travels
