A wise man adapts himself to circumstances, as water shapes itself to the vessel that contains it. — Chinese Proverb
One of the first trees I planted 30 years ago was an Ornamental Pear. Inexperienced at the time, I planted it at woodland’s edge thinking the forest would showcase its white blossoms.
That pear tree stands well over 30 feet today. While it’s usually one of the earliest to bloom in the yard, and blooms profusely, its shaded backside is bare. Still, it found a way to adapt to its environment and thrive. That tree always reminds me that conditions do not have to be perfect to live life.
The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings. — Kakuzo Okakaura
