The true meaning of life


The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
- Nelson Henderson


Plant trees for your great-grandchildren - for future generations. Create the legacy of a better world. Leave this world a better place than you found it. Literally planting trees for your great-grandchildren is a wonderful idea, but far more important... use this symbolism - this imagery - to represent the kind of legacy you want to leave to future generations.

A second meaning I find in today's wonderful quote, is the idea of being of service to groups of which you are not a member - for example, funding research for a disease to which your family carries no genetic disposition.
