If you think

in terms of a year, plant a seed
if in terms of ten years, plant trees
if in terms of hundred years, teach the people

plants hope

Look deep into nature

and then you will understand everything better

Because a tree was planted a long time ago

Someone is sitting in the shade today

A falling tree

makes more noise than a forest that grows
