Willa Cather Quotes

O Pioneers

Freedom so often means that one isn’t needed anywhere.

 

There are always dreamers on the frontier.

The land belongs to the future…I might as well try to will the sunset over there to my brothers’ children.  We come and go, but the land is always here. And the people who love it and understand it are the people that own it for a little while.
