Tirukkural Teachings on the Importance of Farming

Wherever it may wander, the world follows the farmer's plough. Thus despite all its hardships, farming is the foremost occupation. Farmers are the linchpin of the world as they support all who take up other work, not having the strength to plough. Those who live by the plough live in self-sufficiency. All others lean on them to simply subsist. Mother Earth laughs when she sees lazy men crying, ‘We are so poor.’ Those who eat food harvested with their own hands will never beg and never refuse a beggar's outstretched palm. When farmers stop farming, even desireless ascetics will not last long.
