Quote: "Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago"

(Taken at Thar Desert, Rajasthan, India) 

"Someone is sitting in the shade today 
because someone planted a tree a long time ago."
- Warren Buffett


Think of the things we are enjoying now:

The peace
The safety
The equality
The basic human rights
The religious freedom
The clean water
The education
The healthcare

We should learn to practice to live in Gratitude.
Many things that we are enjoying now are the results of the innovation, sacrifice, hard work, pain, war, riots, protests, illness, sadness, hardship that many human beings before us have went through .

This is the law of inter-dependency.
We are not alone, and we are dependent on each other.

And more importantly, we should be grateful towards our parents and our predecessors. 
 Remember that we are enjoying the fruits of their labour and sacrifice.
For that, we should honor them by living a good life and live in Gratitude.
