If you give a man a fish, he will make a meal.
If you teach him to fish, he will have a living.
If you are thinking a year ahead, sow seed.
If you are thinking ten years ahead, plant a tree.
If you are thinking one hundred years ahead,
Educate the people.
By sowing a seed once, you harvest once.
By planting a tree, you harvest tenfold.
By educating the people,
They learn to nourish the soil,
Grow healing plants,
Feed and heal one another
Harvest for generations to come.
Traditional proverb adapted by Dr. Ed Bauman
