When eating bamboo sprouts, remember the man who planted them. 
~ Chinese Proverb

I'm a grammaphobic typochondriac with an uncontrollable addiction to quotes.  I was quietly feeding my addiction and happily scanning through quotes tonight when my eyes stopped - and stared - as I read the above. 

No author to cite.  No one person is attributed with speaking this profound truth.  Instead, a proverb from a people.  A concept of a culture.  A way of life for a land. 

So profound.  So simple.  So something we don't think to do in our busy lives that are filled with running ahead, running amuck... simply running.  

So stop.  Smile.  Consider.  Give thanks.  

You are not alone.  Let's work together and provide for each other.
