Quotation by Borden Chase

Turn 'em loose.... Wherever they go, they'll be on my land. My land. We're here and we're gonna stay here. Gimme ten years and I'll have that brand on the gates of the greatest ranch in Texas. The big house'll be down by the river, the corrals and the barns behind it. It'll be a good place to live in. Ten years and I'll have the Red River "D" on more cattle than you've looked at anywhere. I'll have that brand on enough beef to feed the whole country. Good beef for hungry people. Beef to make 'em strong, to make 'em grow. But it takes work, it takes sweat, and it takes time, lots of time. It takes years.
Borden Chase [Frank Fowler] (1900–1971), U.S. screenwriter, Charles Schnee U.S., screenwriter, and Howard Hawks. Tom Dunson (John Wayne), Red River, describing his plans to build a cattle ranch (1948).
