Wyeth, Karl, 1948
The harvesters were always sharpening their blades. That is the whole secret of hand work, you know. It's no job at all if you have a really sharp blade. But a lazy man don't like hand work because it's too hard because he's too lazy to keep his blade sharp. But I suppose if there weren't any lazy men, we'd never have gotten tractors, would we?
