Welcome to my page

I find it a privilege being on this planet at the same time as you, and believe we all are here at this time of humanity for a purpose. I hope you will find it interesting getting into conversation with me and my readers.

To build or To plant?

In life each person can take one of two attitudes: to build or to plant.

The builders might take years over their tasks, but one day, they finish what they’re doing. Then they find they’re hemmed in by their own walls. Life loses its meaning when the building stops.

Then there are those who plant. They endure storms and all the many vicissitudes of the seasons, and they rarely rest. But, unlike a building, a garden never stops growing. And while it requires the gardener’s constant attention, it also allows life for the gardener to be a great adventure.

Which one are you?

From the book ‘Brida’ by Paulo Coelho

you cant compare between build or plant, build for something dose not have a life and plant for growing life on something but we need both in our life, to build something for what we are planting. what do you thing? for example, you need to build a garden for you plant to grow.
