Mid Week Quote: Chinese Proverb

Happy Wednesday

Now there is nothing I love more than going for a walk and looking at trees, especially old trees. Yesterday we went for an explore and saw this amazing tree that was clearly very old, it was dead straight and amazing to see. This tree had been trimmed at one point due to the important ruins next to it but it made me wonder just how impressive that tree had been before it was trimmed and also what history that tree had seen. As you can see, I like trees. So here is a tree related quote.

 

“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

Mid Week Quote: Mark Twain

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far.

I really love this quote by Mark Twain so I thought I had to share it with you all.

 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbour, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”

 

Mark Twain
