【As a Tree 】
Be as a tree. A tree that stands strong, no matter the wind or rain or the sun’s strong rays. For the wind does not define a tree. For the rain does not define a tree. For the sun does not define a tree. A tree stands tall -firmly, simply, rooted in soil. A tree offers leaves to summer winds and but bare branches to winter winds. A tree awaits the coming of the rain and waits out the drying of the rain. A tree receives of the sun and returns again glory to the earth. A tree is a tree and no more, despite the elements and despite their absence. Be as the tree and stand strong -despite what may, and despite what may not.

A fool listens with armor and speaks with bullets to an enemy perceived behind blinders.

Camouflage conceals cowardice; compassion reveals courage.

The fool carry a basket to fill; the wise carry a basket to empty.

The nimble mind can do more with clumsy hands than nimble hands can ever do with a clumsy mind.

A tree buries its roots in dirt, but never its trunk.

A weed will wind its way.

A brighter sun makes not a flower taller.

A step is part reach -and part push.
