Even the soil of the vineyards was not to be overtaxed by planting other crops between the rows (Deut. 22:9). The oxen that trod out the grain were not to be muzzled so that they could eat while they worked (Deut. 25:4). And so on." - Richard J. Foster

"As a moral and social institution, a weekly rest is invaluable. It is a quiet domestic reunion for the bustling sons of toil.

But above all, a Sabbath (one day of rest in seven) is necessary for man's moral and religious interests." - Robert Dabney
