The cardinals have elected me, a simple, humble worker in the Lord’s vineyard.

In other words, I’d say the whole story of Bob Dylan is one man’s search for God. The turns and the steps he takes to find God are his business. I think he went to a study group at the Vineyard, and it created a lot of excitement.

Dear brothers and sisters, after the great Pope John Paul II, the cardinals have elected me – a simple, humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord.

Let me acknowledge that I realize that, in honoring me, the Committee of the Royal Academy of Sciences is in fact saying a good word for all of those of my generation who have been laboring in the same vineyard.

Robert M. Parker, Jr.
My grandparents in Istria had a frasca, which is about the most basic kind of grocery/restaurant. They sold wine from their own vineyard. I took control of the vineyard, hired a local winemaker, and bought another winery in 1996. We had our first commercial vintage in 1998.
Joe Bastianich
I started my own business because my parents had no dowry for me, and I was worried. I ran it from their Martha Vineyard’s summer house. I baby-sat for a 14-year-old boy all summer and was giving him time-outs, even though I was two years younger than him.
Chelsea Handler
The strength that I have comes from irrigating the citrus plantation, ploughing in the vineyard, guarding the melon fields at night. I believe that’s what gave me the strength.

I was at our beautiful home in Martha’s Vineyard, near Boston, sitting on the porch looking at the ocean when I got a phone called and was asked, ‘Would I like to do ‘CSI’?’ A week later, I’m at a coroner’s office in Las Vegas, participating in a quadruple autopsy.
Ted Danson
I used to work out on an island called Martha’s Vineyard. I ran a pizza oven, I caddied, I worked on a fishing boat, and life is very easy out there. It’s a vacation lifestyle all the time.
Austin Stowell

Zhao Wei
Israel has been a stage on which American Jews have played out their fantasies of toughness – often from Martha’s Vineyard.
Norman Finkelstein
To work a vineyard, you need a lot of guts to do that. To go out there and work all year, you almost feel that these people talk to the grapes. Wine is a lifestyle, and you can talk about it for ages. It’s a passion, but it’s not something I can do on a daily basis.
Thomas Muster
I’m very lucky that I got to spend my summers at my grandmother’s house on Martha’s Vineyard. My brother really loved fishing, and he spent a lot of summers working on a charter fishing boat.

If you’re sitting in a place like Martha’s Vineyard, I don’t think you’re going to write a song about a ski resort.
Adam Schlesinger
I remember a humorous episode from Bill Clinton’s presidency in which his advisers prevailed upon him, one summer before his re-election campaign, to spend his vacation in Montana and Wyoming instead of the usual Martha’s Vineyard. The theory was that he’d benefit from hanging out someplace a little more down to earth.
Steve Bullock
In 1981, when he ran for governor, I confiscated the needlepoint belts of New Jersey’s Tom Kean. It’s a patrician look that is right for the Vineyard, Nantucket, Darien, Greenwich, Charleston and Savannah.
Roger Stone
Martha’s Vineyard is a very strange place, racially speaking. Or maybe it’s the way things could be if everyone had a bit more money and job security and status and could meet on equal enough footing.
Thomas Chatterton Williams
I was a huge fan of ‘Avenue Q’ long before I ever dreamed of being a part of it. I saw it off-Broadway at the Vineyard and waited at the stage door for autographs!
