“Any Jackass can kick down a barn, but it takes a good carpenter to build one.” Sam Rayburn

“Do not let a flattering woman coax and wheedle you and deceive you; she is after your barn.” Hesiod

“Inside a barn is a whole universe, with its own time zone and climate and ecosystem, a shadowy world of swirling dust illuminated in tiger stripes by light shining through the cracks between the boards. Old leather tack, lengths of chain, rope, and baling twine dangled from nails and rafters and draped over stall railings. Generations of pocketknives lay lost in the layers of detritus on the floor.”  Carolyn Jourdan
