“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”

Trees & Life

I was at a funeral today for one of my mother’s good friends who was very giving and charitable. As part of the ceremony a priest (there were about 10 there as she was very active with many religious groups) shared two proverbs about trees:

“Society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.”

— Greek Proverb

“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”

— African American Proberb

A good reminder to think long not just short term.
