I see the rural virtues leave the land.
One circumstance that helped our character development: we were needed. I often think today of what an impact could be made if children believed they were contributing to a family's essential survival and happiness. In the transformation from a Rural to an urban society, children are — though they might not agree — robbed of the opportunity to do genuinely responsible work.
Nor Rural sights alone, but Rural sounds Exhilarate the spirit, and restore The tone of languid Nature.william cowper
So on he fares, and to the border comes, Of Eden, where delicious Paradise, Now nearer, crowns with her enclosure green, As with a Rural mound, the champain head Of a steep wilderness.john milton
Not many sounds in life, and I include all urban and Rural sounds, exceed in interest a knock at the door.Charles Lamb
The present Indian government, however, is neither able or willing to accept the challenge and to provide the leadership in breaking the resistance of urban and Rural interests.paul a. baran
Rural poetry is the pleasure ground of those who live in cities.samuel palmer

In sober state,Through the sequestered vale of Rural life,The venerable patriarch guileless heldThe tenor of his way.Beilby Porteus
When Sir Winton Turnbull [who represented a large Rural seat] was raving and ranting on the adjournment and shouted: "I am a Country member". I interjected "I remember". He could not understand why, for the first time in all the years he had been speaking in the House, there was instant and loud applause from both sides.gough whitlam
I'm not anti-Muslim, I'm not anti-immigration; I'm saying we've got big problems in our cities. It's not very smart to make the problem bigger by letting in millions more immigrants from Rural Muslim cultures that don't assimilate.pim fortuyn
The Rural world was not ripe for him. A man should be only partially before his time to be completely to the vanward in aspirations is fatal to fame. Had Philip's warlike son been intellectually so far ahead as to have attempted civilization without bloodshed, he would have been twice the godlike hero that he seemed, but nobody would have heard of an Alexander.thomas hardy
With hindsight, the Samoa system with appropriate modifications ought to have been adopted. The complete acceptance of western democratic structures, apart from the appointment of Bose Levu Vakaturaga appointees in the Senate, in some respect was in advance of the understanding of democratic principles, particularly in the Rural areas.ratu joni madraiwiwi
The Americans never use the word peasant, because they have no idea of the class which that term denotes; the ignorance of more remote ages, the simplicity of Rural life, and the rusticity of the villager have not been preserved among them; and they are alike unacquainted with the virtues, the vices, the coarse habits, and the simple graces of an early stage of civilization.alexis de tocqueville
The basic purpose of life and the basic purpose of education is to enhance one’s boundaries of perception. I don’t want the children to just survive after ten years of schooling here. They must blossom and flower wherever they go. -Sadhguru (on Isha Vidhya Rural education project)jaggi vasudev
Our Rural ancestors, with little blest, Patient of labour when the end was rest, Indulg'd the day that hous'd their annual grain, With feasts, and off'rings, and a thankful strain.Alexander Pope

Moreover, cats perform useful service, particularly in Rural areas, in combating rodents work they necessarily perform alone and without regard for property lines.
How still the morning of the hallow'd day! Mute is the voice of Rural labour, hush'd The ploughboy's whistle, and the milkmaid's song.
If ever henceforth thou These Rural latches to his entrance open, Or hoop his body more with thy embraces, I will devise a death as cruel for thee As thou art tender to't.william shakespeare
On Leven's banks, while free to rove, And tune the Rural pipe to love, I envied not the happiest swain That ever trod the Arcadian plain. Pure stream! in whose transparent wave My youthful limbs I wont to lave; No torrents stain thy limpid source, No rocks impede thy dimpling course, That sweetly warbles o'er its bed, With white, round, polish'd pebbles spread.tobias smollett
I remember at Chamouni – in the very eyes of Mont Blanc – hearing another woman – English also – exclaim to her party – "did you ever see any thing more Rural ".
