The Fly and the Tree
A mayfly lives only 24h. The human looks at the fly and thinks “if I had that short of a life I would enjoy every minute.” The Great Basin tree lives 5000 years. The tree looks at the human and thinks “if I had that short of a life I would enjoy every second.”
Every night we go to bed and we die when we wake up we are reborn. Make every minute count.
