Gardening: Plan And Listen

Well planted is not easily uprooted; Well taken care of is not easily taken away; And will be honored from generation to generation. Cultivated in yourself, goodness becomes real. Cultivated in your family it grows; Cultivated in your village it multiplies; Cultivated in your country it flourishes; Cultivated in the world it brings goodness everywhere. We understand others through understanding ourselves.
