O fortunatos nimium sua si bona norint, agricolas translated from Latin means The farmers would count themselves lucky, if they only knew how good they had it (Virgil, The Georgics, book 2, verse 458). From this expression it is evident the love the poet from Mantua had for the beauty and charm of country life. In the 19th century, it was the motto of the Maryland State Agricultural Society. The longer quote is: O fortunatos nimium, sua si bona norint,Agricolas, quibus ipsa, procul discordibus armis,Fundit humo facilem victum justissima tellus!
